The Hidden Crisis in Graduate Education: Attrition from Ph.D. Programs.
Lovitts, Barbara E.; Nelson, Cary
Academe, v86 n6 p44-50 Nov-Dec 2000
Discusses attrition as a fundamental weakness of doctoral education, examining why half of America's graduate students leave without completing their degrees. Research suggests that problems relate to the application process, types of student supports, program quality, and faculty role. Attrition is deeply embedded in the organizational culture of graduate school and the structure and process of graduate education. (SM)
