Women Enrolling in College
in Greater Numbers than Men
Nationally, nearly 2 million more women are now attending college than men
and are acquiring far more certificates, associates, bachelorís and masterís
degrees. The U.S. Department of Education projects that by 2014, women will
outpace men on college campuses by about 3 million, will earn 60 percent of all
bachelorís degrees and a majority of professional and doctoral degrees. Some advocates worry the national trend could lead to a generation of men
unable to find good paying jobs or have meaningful relationships with better
educated women. See story at The Anniston Star's website: www.annistonstar.com.
