The end of tuition, continued

And another school ends tuition for middle- and lower-income families.  Brown follows in the footsteps of Stanford and of prep school Phillips Exeter, which in turn followed in the footsteps of Harvard and Yale.

The Nonprofiteer would still like to know what percentage of students fall into this category; how much recruiting the admissions offices are doing among prospective students in this category; the average debt of the student who will graduate from these institutions under this program.  But she applauds the universities’ acknowledgement that if they don’t use their endowments to support their missions the body politic will be happy to do it for them.
