Analytical Paper 1

720 words - 3 pages

Barbara Schneider from the University of Chicago is the author of the article I chosen.
It is entitled, Educational Stratification and the Life Course. I located this article online from the Albertson’s library at Boise State University through the JSTOR database.

The latter comes with its own set of problems that may make it harder for the student to make it through school in order to obtain a degree.
