This really highlights the relationship between wealth and intellectual development. I'm sure the majority of affluent students at Harvard and Stanford deserves to be there intellectually, but the amazing percentage of how many of them are exceedingly rich tells me it takes money to develop, expose and finally create a well-rounded and intelligent individual.....

I'm developing a huge amount of respect for public schools that has not forgotten that the mission of college education is to provide social mobility.
