Student Attrition from Newfoundland and Labrador's Public College.
Kirby, Dale; Sharpe, Dennis
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v47 n4 p353-68 Win 2001
About one quarter of first-semester students enrolled in engineering technology programs at a Newfoundland (Canada) college dropped out. Student interviews and surveys indicate that academic difficulty was the most significant factor. Part-time attendance, uncertainty about future employment opportunities, work, and time elapsed since high school were also factors. (Contains 40 references.) (TD)
