Living below the poverty line?

Apropos of nothing, I just found out that I am poor! The New York Times and Yale University think so, anyway. Heck, I’m poor even by Harvard’s standards.

The Times article,

Yale Cuts Expenses for Poor in a Move to Beat Competitors

by Greg Winter says that Yale won’t require parents earning less than $45,000 to contribute anything to their child’s education at Yale. It goes on to say that Harvard has a similar program for parents earning less than $40,000.

I teach ESL at a college. I could get a HUGE raise next year and still not be above the limit at either school. Too bad I don’t have a kid who wants to go to Yale!
