Education: The Critical Filter. Volume 2. A Statistical Report on the Status of Female Students in Postsecondary Education.
Butler, Matilda; Marzone, Jean
The progress and status of female students in postsecondary education are presented in this second of a three-volume study of female education. Volume one focuses on the status of girls and women in elementary and secondary education; volume three, on female professionals in postsecondary education. This volume deals with undergraduate and post-baccalaureate concerns separately. In the first part, such undergraduate issues as college enrollment, portrayal in textbooks, counseling, financial concerns, athletics and extracurricular activities, and outcomes are addressed. The post-baccalaureate section reports enrollment, financial concerns, outcomes, and employment. Among the numerous conclusions are: women and men will represent equal percentages of the college population in the 1980's; women enter college with better grades than men; women in graduate school have a higher attrition rate than men; annual incomes of women and men with four years of college are considerably different; and in 1879 women earned 1 percent of all Master's degrees and in 1978 they earned 48 percent. Extensive tables and a bibliography are provided. (LC)
