Something NOT to Be Thankful For

caseybrienza just posted this nauseating statistic:
From Public Colleges as 'Engines of Inequality' in The New York Times today:
In recent years, aid to students whose families earn over $100,000 has more than quadrupled at the public flagship and research universities. Incredibly, the average institutional grant to students from high-income families is actually larger than the average grant to low- or middle-income families.
Okay, that excerpt speaks for itself. In spades.

Oh, and, just in case you're inclined not to believe this, the stats come from a non-partisan foundation called Education Trust, which is, as its name implies, dedicated to reform in education.
Let's all vomit in unison now. 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . .

Why don't I have one of those handy mood icons that will provide an animated illustration of this?
