Returning to High School in Ontario: Adult Students, Postsecondary Plans and Program Supports (Aug 2013)

Report from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario written by Christine Pinsent-Johnson, Shannon Howell and Rebekka King
Research Summary:
Most adults return to high school because they want to pursue postsecondary education, according to a new study from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO). The most often cited reasons for going back were the need for a better paying job, to train for a particular career, the desire to continue learning and/or to pursue personal interests.

This study is one of many initiated by HEQCO to explore the pathways to postsecondary education of “non-traditional” students and the policy changes that may ease their transition into and through Ontario’s postsecondary system.
