  • As is almost always the case, research questions become more complex and nuanced over time. I’m intrigued by this new study questions some of the assumptions from the recent “undermatching” discussions that elite schools would be welcoming to many more low-income students. In this critique of new research, Sara Goldrick-Rab comments:

    “Assuming that the only choice that matters is whether to go to an elite college will help “the cream of the crop of low-income students,” while diverting attention from the lack of resources for the schools and colleges the vast majority of low-income students attend, and are likely to continue to attend.”
