Some Colleges Have More Students From the Top 1 Percent Than the Bottom 60. Find Yours–By Gregor Aisch, Larry Buchanan, Amanda Cox and Kevin Quealy for the New York Times

Then we have the Ivy’s and the Elite colleges.  Between this narrative and the preveiously posted essay on working class universities, there is an even larger socio-economic discussion pertaining to the not so obvious class and caste system in the United States. In just two generations, my own family has experienced both ends of this spectrum. For those serving the public at the local government level, this data may not seem relevant. On the contrary, I would posit that municipal professionals need to clearly understand these very telling socio-economic characteristics of society. To do so will not only give greater clarity as to the expectations of the public, but it will also serve to assist each public servant’s understanding of their own place and relationship with the greater polity.  Where do you fall on the spectrum?
