Postsecondary Education Access Study. Part II: Vermont Adult Aspiration Study. Second Interim Report.
Hochschild, Steven F.; Johnston, James Gilbert
A sample of adults in Vermont were surveyed by questionnaires to determine interest in, or aspirations for, postsecondary education; motivating forces which create these aspirations, perceived obstacles which might discourage participation, preferences for sponsoring institutions, and location of instruction. A second concern of the study was the distribution of the demand for postsecondary education by various target populations or social groupings. The third purpose of the study was to present an analysis of the "equality of opportunity" for postsecondary education for those who did and did not complete the traditional sequence of postsecondary education following high school graduation. Postsecondary education is used in this study to refer to any form of formal education a person acquires after leaving (not necessarily graduating) high school. Numerous tables are presented which show the results of the questionnaire. (Author/SW)
