An excellent article “Wealth, not income, matters for getting into college” by Dr. Su Jin Jez was published in op-ed section of The Sacramento Bee on March 29, 2015.

When it comes to college opportunity, family wealth matters much more than family income. This excellent article also talks about how family wealth and not family income plays a prominent role in academic achievement and college admissions. And family wealth should be considered as the basis of financial aid. She suggested our policies need to match reality in which first step can be at least start treating the illness properly, by diagnosing the problem accurately and getting the policy prescription right.
