Bailey and Dynarski's research on wealth gap in post-secondary education cited in piece on growing inequality in US

a PSC In The News reference

"U.S. Health, Wealth, and Education Gaps Grow" - Huffington Post. 02/25/2016.

The author of this piece says that high school social studies classes should strive to make students more knowledgeable citizens and voters by exploring the causes and outcomes of growing wealth gaps in health, mortality, education, and life achievement. He cites the work of Martha Bailey and Susan Dynarski on the growing wealth-based inequality in college attendance and graduation as an example of such information.
