Higher Ed and the American dream

January 30, 2018 Inside Higher Ed

During a presentation at the annual Association of American Colleges and Universities meetings, Associate Professor of Economics John Friedman offered some good news on new findings on big data on intergenerational mobility. Sharing data from the Equality of Opportunity Project, which he leads, Friedman said many colleges certainly deserve further study as potential engines of mobility. “This paints a very positive picture of the potential of higher education -- if we can get those students in the door.”
