Dr. Applewhite discusses the reasons why parents drop-out of college and the workforce. These are parents categorized as "non-traditional" adult learners/students that do not fit the stereotype held of the "traditional" college student. According to research, nearly two-thirds of "non-traditional" adult college students in the U.S. drop out prior to graduation! This is largely due to the lack of planning in all areas of life, sound advisement, and counseling intervention. Adult students with a learning or mental disability, who are parents, carry the additional responsibility of being a role model for their own children to finish school and learning to advocate for accommodations. Hear a unique insight on working parents with mental illness in light of Miriam Carey's shooting incident last year. This show will also shed light on the many alarming reasons Adult Learners/Students drop-out and struggle with the idea of going to back to school and finishing the courses started. Awareness is the first step needed to motivate and encourage those struggling to manage family responsibilities, stressful work and school schedules, and even non-visible disabilities. Special Guests are educational experts, Dr. Kelmer Muhammad and Dr. Sarah Tolliver who share ideas about managing stress to prevent drop-out. Join Dr. Applewhite and guests as they discuss how many overcome difficult experiences and transitions, especially Student Veterans with families. Your donation of at least $5 or more will support our radio broadcasts, and allow us to continue helping students and Veterans with disabilities reach their education and workforce goals?
