Hearn, James C.
Research in Higher Education, v33 n6 p657-87 Dec 1992
Based on data on 8,203 high school graduates from the national High School and Beyond study, it was found that socioeconomically disadvantaged graduates have pursued nontraditional postsecondary enrollment options (part-time, delayed, and nondegree programs), even when data were controlled for differing academic characteristics. Theoretical, management, and policy implications are discussed. (Author/MSE)
