Single Parents and Barriers to University Persistence
Most of the research on single parents and barriers to their persistence is coming out of the USA or England; particularly through graduate student dissertations. These studies have examined students in both universities and colleges; however given the lack of research coming from Canada it is difficult to apply any of these findings to our student population. This study intends to rectify this lack of information and delve into this little known area. Our goal is to determine what barriers single parents experience while at Memorial University, as well as find out how similar these barriers are to international literature.
