Dropping Out of Further Education: Complex Causes and Simplistic Policy Assumptions.
Hodkinson, Phil; Bloomer, Martin
Research Papers in Education: Policy & Practice, v16 n2 p117-40 Jun 2001
Investigated contradictions between the complex reasons why a percentage of English college students dropped out and the simplistic funding and policy assumptions about such "failures." Many factors influencing non-completion lay beyond students' and educational providers' control. Causes of dropping out may be better explained in the complex context of an individual's learning career. Current English policy approaches ignore this complexity. (SM)
