Opinion: Measuring "Success" at Open Admissions Institutions--Thinking Carefully about This Complex Question
Sullivan, Patrick
College English, v70 n6 p618-632 Jul 2008
The author examines surveys indicating that, in general, community college students are significantly less inclined and less able than students at four-year colleges to earn a bachelor's degree. He argues that it is important for teachers of English to understand the numerous conditions that limit the first group's chances for such "success." (Contains 1 note.)
