Podcast: Making Room for Adult Students
Doug Lederman, The Key With Inside Higher Ed
Many of today's college students attend school part time while holding down full-time jobs. They are older. They often have families to support. And many are raising kids alone.
This episode of The Key highlights the landscape of current and prospective adult learners, examining why they often struggle to find their way to and through college, the institutional practices and government policies that can hamper them, and possible approaches to eliminating those obstacles.
