Retention Rates - Renewed Interest but Whose Interest is Being Served?
Longden, Bernard
Research Papers in Education: Policy & Practice, v17 n1 p3-29 Mar 2002
Explores the increased level of interest in retention rates among full-time, undergraduate students, considering the interests served by the state, universities and colleges, and students, and suggesting that as British higher education moves from an elite to a mass system, the elite instincts continue to dominate, working against student retention. Advantages of a global higher education are noted. (SM)
