Summary
"The central motivation for this book is imagining an alternative to the student loan program that better aligns with America's belief that effort and ability should be the deciding factors in determining economic differences. It positions postsecondary education properly as the central lever by which American children can secure for themselves promising futures, and it supports analysis of the extent to which current policy interventions facilitate these mechanisms, or not"--
