In 2005, King’s group conducted a survey of lower-income adults in college. Men, it turned out, had a harder time committing to school, even when they desperately needed to retool. They tended to start out behind academically, and many felt intimidated by the schoolwork. They reported feeling isolated and were much worse at seeking out fellow students, study groups, or counselors to help them adjust. Mothers going back to school described themselves as good role models for their children. Fathers worried that they were abrogating their responsibilities as breadwinner.
Now I have some question to all of NT.
1. Do you see a gap between the men and women that attend you college? And a gap between those who graduate and don't?
2. Why do you think women are graduating at an higher rate compare to men year to year?
3. Is it possible that men face different problems than women in college? And how big of an impact can those problems effect someone from not graduating?
