College Aid for the Needy

+ More

It is a sad indicator of American greed when wealthy individuals not only seek out but also accept college financial aid intended for the disadvantaged ["Financial Aid for the Rich," November 26-December 3].

I am appalled at the willingness of the wealthy to trample upon the poorer members of our society. Colleges are rapidly reverting to bastions of wealth and privilege as they price themselves out of the range of most families. It is up to doctors, lawyers, business moguls, and wealthy individuals to stop looking for handouts and start asking who needs a leg up.
