Advocacy for HBCUs

Posted By: Mavis Sanders on May 20, 2009
 
I read in a commentary by Glen Ford (blackagendareport.com) that President Obama's educational budget includes $73 million in cuts for HBCUs, which cannot be fully made up by the limited increase in maximum Pell Grant funds for low-income students. I encourage all those interested in supporting HBCUs to investigate this claim and write to their elected representatives to insist that federal support for HBCUs is increased not reduced.
