College enrollment among low-income students still trails richer groups
from Pew Research Center
Higher education long has been seen as one of the best ways out of poverty, but connecting low-income students — even the high-achieving ones who presumably are best prepared for college-level work — with colleges and universities remains a challenge. College enrollment among low-income students has generally increased over the past several decades, according to data from the 2013 Digest of Educational Statistics. But the Great Recession and weak recovery have eroded the gains of recent years, and middle- and upper-income students remain far more likely to go to college.
