More love for adult and nontraditional students
Roughly 40 percent of America’s college students are non-traditional students. They are workers who’ve gone back to school, former members of the military embarking on new careers and single parents wanting to do better for their families. They could also be one of the most important game-changers in the ongoing national discussion on college completion and the continuing dialogue at College Inc. about how to fix higher education.It’s these students, those who are independent from their parents, who often have children and jobs, who may actually be responsible for moving the numbers on college completion.
They’re also the students most likely to drop out of college.
