Here's someone saying the quiet part loud.

Unfortunately, some folks seem to object to making college truly accessible because they understand the value of their own education is in how exclusive it is.
But your ability to thrive in society should't depend on your admittance to a fancy 40K+ school.

People take out debt to go to "competitive" schools bc it does make a difference re career opportunities-- so much so that even the rich cheat. #collegecheatingscandal
Working class people or people from first generation college families are told that this is the path to accessing the American dream. Then the second we do, we're told we were idiots for thinking we deserved to sit in the same classrooms with rich kids -- getting the same access.
The problem is having a system where one "brand" of education confers inordinate value on *some* students to such an extent. Education should be a right, not a privilege for the privileged few. It should further divide us into haves and have nots.
