Hearn, James C.
Economics of Education Review, v7 n1 p65-76 1988
Socioeconomic and ascriptive factors clearly influence high school students' academic performance, which in turn influences eventual college choice. This study shows that the socioeconomically disadvantaged who survive academically prior to high school graduation are attending colleges costing approximately the same as those of more advantaged students with similar talents and accomplishments. Includes three tables and 42 references. (MLH)
