The Forgotten 42 Percent.
Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n9 p711-12 May 1999
Noncollege-bound students (the "forgotten 42%") are more likely to be low-wage employees or unemployed. Minority-group employment outcomes are bleak, and poverty data, particularly for dropouts, are even more discouraging. Access to higher education has improved, despite higher tuition costs, but persistence toward degrees has not. (MLH)
