Astone, Nan Marie; Schoen, Robert; Ensminger, Margaret; Rothert, Kendra
Sociology of Education, v73 n3 p133-54 Jul 2000
Demonstrates that in a cohort of young, inner-city African-American adults (1) school reentry is a relatively common occurrence and (2) educational credentials are often acquired in a discontinuous fashion. Points to the relevance of the absence of age restrictions in U.S. schools. Aims to expand existing models of educational decision making to incorporate the decision to reenter school. (CMK)
