New Students of the '70s.
Cross, K. Patricia
Most of America's newest college students are the white sons and daughters of blue collar workers who, because of increased college access, are often poor students academically as well as poor students financially. Colleges must be prepared to offer these students a new kind of learning experience to make freedom of access to college more than a hollow victory. An evaluation of the new students' family background, past educational experience, attitudes and values, and educational interests has been made to pave the way for innovation in the educational system, and findings show that a proposal for an effectively implemented student-centered curriculum is in order.
