Power, Assumptions and Prescriptions: A Critique of Widening Participation Policy-Making.
Thomas, Liz
Higher Education Policy, v14 n4 p361-76 Dec 2001
Discusses the complexity of barriers keeping nontraditional students out of higher education, then examines the United Kingdom government's proposals (contained in "Excellence Challenge") to widen participation. Identifies underlying "simplistic" assumptions about targeting and selection of students and benefits of participation, and illustrates their limitations by examining empirical research. (EV)
