A Portrait of Low-Income Young Adults in Education. Portraits
Institute for Higher Education Policy
This brief takes a broad look at low-income young adults in an effort to contribute to the national discussion on improving degree completion by increasing participation among all disadvantaged populations--especially those who attempt to succeed in postsecondary settings under financial stress. Understanding the linkages between low-income young adults' involvement in postsecondary education and their transition to the labor market is critical to improving the additive value of these experiences. (Contains 1 table, 2 footnotes, and 4 figures.)
