Overeducation and Underemployment: An Agnostic Review.
Smith, Herbert L.
Sociology of Education, v59 n2 p85-99 Apr 1986
Discusses the phenomenon of overeducation and underemployment among college graduates and how the long-predicted glut has had a minimal impact on society. Argues that the misapprehension of the consequences of occupational mismatch of college grads stems from an overemphasis on higher education's traditional role in economic production and occupational attainment.
