The intersection of technology, research, financial aid and student access in higher education

Why here and now? FAFSA 2014-15

Added on by Scott Cline.

The Department of Education annouced this past Tuesday that starting with the 2014-15 FAFSA, it will become more inclusive of families where both parents live in the same household, including gay parents.

This sounds wonderful and even while the Department of Education is playing the dance of DOMA, it has left me with more questions about intention, purpose, and timing.

@Daniel_Luzer at the Washington Monthly struct my thinking:

But well, progressive token gestures are easier than substantive policy fixes.
