Harvard should be free!

It's very rare when I share the same position as conservative commentator Glenn Beck but I think he makes some good points in this article calling out top universities and how they use their endowments.

Harvard alread is free! It seems many people missed the announcements, but Harvard and Princeton are both free for families earning under $60,000, and families earning less than $180,000 get substantial reductions in fees. ( http://www.fao.fas.harvard.edu/) Tuition is completely free at Stanford for families earning less than $100,000 a year, and food, room, etc is totally covered for families making under $60,000.

I think Beck's point is that Harvard should be free for everybody. These are positive steps but I think these schools can do even more.
