Home, Alice M.
Adult Education Quarterly, v48 n2 p85-97 Win 1998
Data from 443 women combining work, family, and schooling showed that lower income increased their vulnerability to role conflict. Perceived intensity of student demands was the strongest predictor of role conflict, overload, and contagion (preoccupation with one role while performing another). Conflict and overload were eased somewhat by distance education. (SK)
