Summary
  • "Drawing on a national study of student borrowing patterns, Derek Price finds that racial and ethnic minorities and low-income students are not only more likely to borrow than their white and upper-income peers, they also are less likely to graduate from high-status institutions and go on to graduate school
  • In addition, current loan programs can burden student borrowers in that their career opportunities are restricted, in effect perpetuating the very patterns of inequality that the programs were intended a alleviate. While the graduates' prospects clearly are higher than they would have been without higher education, the structural pattern of inequality continues to reflect race, ethnic, gender, and class characteristics."
  • "Price concludes with provocative proposals for aid policies that would expand the range of college and career choices for students - policies that would in fact support the role of higher education as a vehicle for individual opportunity and social change."--Jacket
