Going Back to School at 35.
Young, Anne M.
Monthly Labor Review, Oct 1973
As part of the October 1972 Current Population Survey, data were obtained for the first time on the school enrollment status of persons 35 years of age and over, by type of school and labor force status. This survey differs from Office of Education figures on adult education in that it includes only those persons going to school to earn a degree or to train for an occupation. It reveals that 1.5 million adults 35 years of age and over were enrolled in or attending school in October, 1972. Of students age 35 and over, three-fourths are in the labor force and more than half are in college. Data in tables are differentiated further by sex, age, and race. Implications for further research indicated by the author are the factors inducing older adults to return to school, follow-up information on the uses made of education and training taken in mature years, and financing of schooling.
