Griggs v. Duke Power

CCAP in Cooperation with the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy is pleased to announce the release of a new study: Griggs v. Duke Power: Implications for College Credentialing.

This study explores how the 1971 Supreme Court Case may have enormously boosted the number of students attending college as well as increased the earning differential between high school and college graduates. The study concludes that the Griggs case may be partly to blame for rising college costs and that the court’s ruling has inadvertently made it harder for disadvantaged socio-economic groups to secure well paying jobs.
