Guest Comment: Why Undergraduates Leave the Sciences.
Seymour, Elaine
American Journal of Physics, v63 n3 p199-202 Mar 1995
Finds that people who switched from science to nonscience majors at four-year colleges and universities left for the same reasons that "persisters" were discontented with their educational experience. Examines criticisms of the structure of science, mathematics, and engineering education, and the loss of women and minorities. (LZ)
