The issue of academic professionalisation of students in adult education study programs.”│Schreiber-Barsch, Silke and Annika Lehmann. 2014│Weiterbildung am Lernort Universität. “Der pädagogische Blick, 03: 179-194.

Removing Barriers to Higher Education for Undocumented Students│Report released by the Policy Advocate for Generation Progress at the Center for American Progress.
Caught in unfair circumstances, undocumented students—most of them coming of age in the United States—face uncertain futures, their dreams and potential thwarted by roadblocks to higher education. Undocumented students have to navigate a complex web of federal, state, and postsecondary institution policies in order to achieve a postsecondary education. The fact that they are too often locked out of colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher education is a loss not only for them but for the country as well. This lack of access to higher education means that potential entrepreneurs, highly skilled workers, and middle-class consumers and taxpayers will not be there to grow our economy. It is up to policymakers to unblock the path to a brighter future for thousands of young, eager students and for the country as a whole.
