As President Obama and Congress work on a deficit-reduction plan that would decrease federal spending, much of the media’s attention has been directed toward the serious threat facing Pell Grant funding. The nation’s support for protecting student aid from budget cuts is reflected by the pro-Pell editorials and opinion pieces that have appeared in just the last few days. We encourage you to share them with others, and use them in your advocacy efforts!

Here are links to the opinion pieces that have run recently.

If you see other pro-student aid opinion pieces, please post links to them in the comments section below!

Cuts in Pell Grants would have detrimental affects on the 9 million college students who currently receive them. For many of these students, the grant is the deciding factor of whether they can pursue a higher education.
