Finish Line grants referenced on leading economics blog

One of PHENOM’s priorities is finding ways to improve graduation rates at public colleges in a way which is meaningful and stays true to our goal of meaningfully improving accessibility for poor and working class students. The neoliberal approach currently being pursued by Beacon Hill focuses on increasing graduation rates by increasing selectivity, using metrics which will increasingly exclude students on the lower end of the socio-economic spectrum. Our approach includes proposals like the finish line grant, which is apparently receiving attention on the renowned economics blog, the baselinescenario.
