Dear Friends,

 I am presently conducting a study on midlife Latinas and non-Latinas who are either seeking a four-year college degree or have decided not to pursue a four-year college degree. The purpose of this study is to learn perceptions of midlife women (Latinas and non-Latinas) of the value of attaining a four-year college degree.  I am seeking to learn the struggles challenges and means for overcoming them of midlife women with respect to pursuing their education. I would like to tell these stories with an eye towards making recommendations for how programs and institutions might better support women in midlife seeking an education. If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact me at alma_10461@yahoo.com

 

 

 

This study has been approved by Teachers College, Columbia University, protocol# 12-010.

This question focuses on why 18 billion  tax’s dollars are spent  on 47 training programs funded by  the U.S. government , why most  employer are complaining about the training  programs that most  American are un-trainable?

David, Part of of that money being spent by the government is given to small schools who do not train and are a waste of time. However when you try to let the (government) know of such scams, they have no way of documenting, or checking up on a complaint. So, yes lots of money is being spent and in the end no training has been received. As far as employers complaining, well, it has been my experience that employers are requiring that the prospective employee have a particular certification, which sometimes does not mean that the person really knows the subject matter. Instead the government should help employers hire candidates that need a particular training that the employer will provide and the government will pay for.

Friends,

I am still conducting interviews for this study.  If you know if any Latinas/non Latinas between the ages of 40-60 who are either presently seeking a BA or have never sought a BA, point them in my direction.  I only need to conduct a few more interviews. 

 

For those of you who have responded, I am extremely grateful for your support in my study.

Friends,

I'm almost  done with the interviews for my study, but I still have a few more interviews to conduct in order to reach my goal. Again, if any of you know of any women between the ages of 40-60 who are either seeking a bachelor's degree or have never attained a bachelor's degree, please point them in my direction.  The stories the women in my study convey are important in helping us understand the perceptions midlife women have toward education and how education is valued based on their experiences.  Again, I can be reached at alma_10461@yahoo.com .  For those of you who have responded, thanks for your help.
