Today’s NY Times, “gated communities of higher education”

The New York Times front page story today underscored my earlier blog post, "Its College Not Chanel."
Tamar Lewin writes that according to the group The Education Trust:

"From 1995 to 2003, flagship and leading public research universities quadrupled their aid to students from families with incomes over $100,000, while aid to students from the poorest families declined, according to the Education Trust. The best public universities, the group said, have come to resemble 'gated communities of higher education'."
