I received the following message. While I believe that we can educate ourselves and each other for free anyway, I also know that a lot of people would love the chance to go to college. (I went. It taught me that, while education is a great gift, college isn't necessary to get it. The best way to learn there are no Experts is by becoming one.) But anyway, here's the message:
Harvard announces free tuition for families making less than $40,000
Please get this information into the hands of teachers, counselors, family
advocates and others who come in contact with bright, and talented students
from low and moderate income families.
If you know of a family earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor student
graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to pay the tuition.
The prestigious university recently announced that from now on undergraduate
students from low-income families can go to Harvard for free...no tuition and
no student loans!
To find out more about Harvard offering free tuition for families making less
than $40,000 a year visit Harvard's financial aid web site at:

front page) or call the school's financial aid office at (617) 495- 1581.
