Undermining Pell: Volume III – The News Keeps Getting Worse for Low-Income Students

From the abstract:
In the face of steep state budget cuts over the past decade, public colleges are increasingly adopting the enrollment management tactics of private-colleges – to the detriment of low-income and working-class students. In fact, nearly half of public four-year colleges examined now leave the most financially needy students on the hook for more than $10,000 per school year. Back in 2010-11, only about a third of these public institutions charged the lowest-income students that much.
