Fostering independence takes work: someone has to teach the kid to drive, show them how to get to the mall, maybe prod them to make some friends and get outside. We may parody the work of parenting as a set of rules and consequences, but the work of encouraging positive behavior is just as (if not more important) than sanctioning the negative.

need to figure out why particularly low-income people — even ones who complete college — are not climbing to the highest ranks in income. That has to do with income inequality and social mobility. It’s quite an accomplishment to move someone from the 25th to the 50th percentile, but if you want to get up into the 90s, 95th, 99th, that seems to be a lot harder if you grow up low-income. We need to understand why

The things taught and the way that they are taught generally mean that the virtues of capitalist market managerialism are told and sold as if there were no other ways of seeing the world.

If we educate our graduates in the inevitability of tooth-and-claw capitalism, it is hardly surprising that we end up with justifications for massive salary payments to people who take huge risks with other people’s money

What I do know is this: We aren’t going to have any future if we don’t find a way for millennials whose parents aren’t rich to get an education. They certainly aren’t going to get good paying jobs on the assembly line at Pontiac or Oldsmobile.

If this isn’t our top priority, it should be.

If you are saving money in a 529 to pay for college and live in a state that gives you a tax deduction for it, you might consider making a donation to a college access program for low-income kids. It’s a small gesture, but it can make a big difference to a child in your community and beyond.

The share of lower-income students at many public colleges has fallen somewhat over the last 15 years.

The reason is clear. State funding for higher education has plummeted. It’s down 18 percent per student, adjusted for inflation, since 2008, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The financial crisis pinched state budgets, and facing a pinch, some states decided education wasn’t a top priority.

Most of you likely had no idea there was something called « remedial education » in us colleges. It’s been around since the 60s and has not had the intended impact (to help supposedly under-prepared students get up to speed with college level algebra or writing). Instead it just keeps students in limbo while they use up their aid and incur loans for stuff they already studied in high school. This article summarized the issue well and points to the simple fact that enrolling students in college level stats instead (conceptually very diff from algebra and much more important for educating a democratic citizenry) fixes the problem .....

Having personally witnessed hundreds of low income youth go through the Uc system, graduate and get jobs that put them on upwardly mobile trajectories , I think of this university system as a national treasure . This article helps understand the political magic it will take to conserve it for future generations

. The institutions have shifted disproportionately to part-time faculty to handle the workload, it has become increasingly difficult for students to graduate on time and investments in maintenance and repair have been particularly hard hit.

California colleges are turning away students. It’s time to rethink funding for UC and CSU

This article thesis is a bit misleading because the « futuristic envt » he imagines is actually other people vs. nature and animals that nomads depend on. This article briefly reminded me of a fabulous movie I saw 20 years ago on nomads, the Gobi desert and how to reconcile a camel with the newborn she rejected...

, but we are headed to a future where we may own and carry less while depending on the environment to provide more.

He talked of “bad inequality” but also “good inequality”, an unfashionable idea today. Higher earnings for scientists, doctors and computer programmers help motivate students to tackle these difficult subjects, in the process pushing knowledge forward; from this perspective, inequality contributes to human capital. But when inequality gets too extreme, the schooling and even the health of children from poor families suffer, with their parents unable adequately to provide for them.

I sure wish I understood this article better - it seems to me that the author is pining for some past era where words mattered more than deeds, where a young person would be encouraged to become a pastor over starting a school. Why is that a better era?
From the article:
I’ve been told again and again that it’s form of “evangelism” is deed-based not word-based. That is a failure of nerve and it is failure to be evangelical.

I agree with everything here but I'm less optimistic about the conclusion - we génération xers are the little piece of ham squeezed between two large demographic groups and our political voice counts less. We are also, by virtue of being in our 40s, very busy so generally less available to make noise (except my husband)....

The Generation Y folks screwed us - instead of joining our ranks they defected to become millenials....

Obamas ed department certainly did not waste is last month in power, highlighting colleges that Are not producing decent return on investment for their attendees. But the root cause of the rise of all these risky colleges (most of them for profit) is the systematic divestiture of state funding for public college.

According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, funding for two- and four-year colleges is almost $10 billion lower than it was before the recession.
