It seems very surprising that many would focus their criticism on Harvard which was one of the first highly selective colleges to explicitly adopt the 10% rule by which no one coming from a family earning less than $200,000 would be asked to pay more than 10% of their income for their children's tuition (data from write paper for me paper writing service). Moreover, anyone earning less than $65,000 would be free which is exactly consistent with your recommendation at a level twice the median income in this country. Such generosity is matched by only a few other elite schools and is likely the result of the very large endowment that you criticize. Your statement regarding the unwillingness of some poor students to apply to elite colleges may be valid. "I also wonder how many lower-income families unfamiliar with our elite college system see such huge costs and automatically assume that Harvard is only open to the very rich. " See research below from Caroline Hoxby of Stanford which attests to this. But the answer seems less to compel Harvard to be even more generous and more to communicate the message to more poor children that the opportunity exists to attend elite colleges regardless of financial background.

Another local crook like Sara Gonzalez. Because of individuals like this guy Sunset Park is in such a bad shape, he's had all his life to improve it...Now that things are getting a little better he should stay in his house in Rego Park (where his kids go to school) and let people that live in the district take care of the district!

Brad Lander and his sidekick Antonio Reynoso have done it again. When will these two clowns start growing up and acting their ages? What did these clowns accomplish this morning? They joined with professional agitators to disrupt both street and pedestrian traffic this money while closing a bunch of stores. These clowns are shown were a plastic throw away rain poncho - why didn't they wear a reusable cloth rain coat. This shows that they are hypocrites as these two jerks voted to tax each and every of our shopping bags a nickel because plastic is not environmental but they go ahead and wear a disposable plastic poncho. And who cleaned up the mess Landers and the agitators left behind - did the Sanitation Dept give out littering tickets? Who paid for the extra police - Lander? This rally was unnecessary and instead of representing a cause which will hurt people in the short and long run, why don't these two repeal the nickel bag tax before it starts in March?
