Bailey says income drives college graduation rates, which drive rich-poor income gap

a PSC In The News reference, 2011

"College graduation rates: Income really matters" - CNN Money. 11/21/2011.

In this story on the growing rich-poor income gap, Martha Bailey says that education is a key factor. Her recent work compares students who graduated in the late 1990s and early 2000s to those in college two decades before. She found the wealthy made great gains in graduation rates, while the poor only inched up over that time period.
