Open Admissions: A Reply to the Critics.
Scott, Robert A.
Higher Education Review, v11 n1 p51-70 Fall 1978
This response to criticisms of open admissions programs in U.S. postsecondary education addresses the following issues: that there are not enough jobs for graduates; that enrollments will decline anyway; and that expanding access to education is a myth that promises social mobility but only maintains social inequalities.
