This is the text of an email newsletter distributed by Kantrowitz. The letter addresses the proposal by Republicans in the House of Representatives to cut the maximum Pell Grant award (currently$5,550). Kantrowitz argues that this proposal is unwise and short-sighted. He suggests cutting the subsidized interest on Stafford loans if reductions are truly needed because it "would have a much less severe impact on access, persistence and completion than cutting the Pell Grant."
