On "class based affirmative action."
When Gov. Erlich changed the Maryland higher education funding to be less merit based and more class based, the middle and upper class people with children in college or about to be in college in the state of Maryland had a fit!
The most common refrain was, "We did what we are supposed to do. He/she studied, did well, and just because of our income, we can't get any aid!"
No one dare talks about that entitlement mentality.
