Unlike the higher education many sons and daughters of well off families receive at Yale, Harvard, and other bastions of ethics, Berea has been a remarkable beacon of how things can and should be done. However, since Berea does not charge for tuition, they have been especially hard hit by our fellow Americans greed on Wall Street and at Big Banks.

There are so many young people out there who truly deserve to get an education and break the cycle of poverty in which they have been raised. So, I’d like to propose that Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, and Bank of America each pass the hat, and cough up some dough.

 

Also, do take the time to read a good article in the NYT regarding how Amherst College is learning from Berea.
