International Journal of Lifelong Education, v22 n3 p266-80 May-Jun 2003
Analysis of data on adults who left school before age 17 and later enrolled in university (New Zealand, n=953; England, n=762) identified factors that influenced reentry. A typology emerged: (1) academically able with financial or other constraints; (2) those uncertain about academic abilities or usefulness of schooling; and (3) alienated, rebellious, or freedom-seeking individuals. (Contains 36 references.) (SK)
