The Federal Government has had a major impact on the funding of student financial aid since the Roosevelt era. Assume for the sake of discussion that the federal government opts out of providing student financial assistance as a result of congressional budget decisions. Discuss the implications of this change on higher education. You should consider, but do not limit your discussion to, such topics as the impact upon the accessibility of higher education, impact on various types of institutions in higher education, the impact upon the employability of youth, and the impact on the economy of the states and the federal government.
