College for whom?

6/18/2012: Robert Samuelson had a recent column, “‘College for all’ mindset compounds problem“, arguing that the US probably has enough college graduates, or close to it.

High ability/low income students have a 29% chance of completing college – a bit below the 30% rate for low ability/high income students.
