Abstract: 
Low-income studentsÂ’ access to the best of American higher education is a matter not only of individual equality of opportunity, but of social efficiency in fully utilizing the nationÂ’s talents. If very able students are denied access to highly demanding colleges because of low family incomes, society suffers along with the individual. So it has been our assumption that these privileged schools should aim to have their student bodies include students from low-income families at least in proportion to their share in the national population of high ability students.
