Higher ed policy wonks—I continue to see you make the case for means-tested access to college. You call it progressive.

Seems like you’ve missed a key point: the administrative burden on individuals is decidedly regressive. You’re not going to overcome that.
I’d like to know how all of you arguing for a means-tested ceiling on access to free public higher ed because it “promotes racial equity” understand the burden of the FAFSA, verification, and annual requirements by race/ethnicity ? Serious question. What’s your plan?
Some of you are probably wondering, why I support means-testing debt forgiveness if I oppose means-testing access to college? Totally fair q.

I strongly suspect we have to choose. I want to be wrong. But I also suspect the ROI much bigger on not means-testing college.
