In Response to: Essay: Class on Campus

(Via Facebook) A major issue when I was around the Hidden Minority Council starting up circa 2014 was access to the eating clubs and the economic, cultural, and social capital they represent. What is going to happen to all of these low-income students when they graduate? Are these “brothers and sisters” going to actually help one another get jobs and other kinds of capital? Or are the Pell-eligible students just expected to go back where they came from and pull themselves and their communities of origin up by the bootstraps?
