Well, with $100,000 in debt, I presume that the disadvantaged folks aren’t gonna have much chance to pursue any career that doesn’t pay right away. I think it’s great that a number of schools are moving away from student loans to flat-out grants.

Of course, the larger question is, how many disadvantaged students, after watching their families struggle financially, choose majors in an attempt to ensure that they won’t find themselves in a similar situation? How many folks forgo that dance major for a degree that might look better on a law school application (or might result in an immediate job after graduation)?
