A Times article last week pointed out that the places with the most equitable distributions of wealth in the US are in the midwest and south–where the politics are anything but. And where the politics lean liberal, inequality is greatest. This Slate post points out the further irony that the most progressive institutions of higher learning in those progressive-but-unequal liberal states–produce some of the most unequal educational outcomes for society.
