Back to School for Grownups Guides Adults Back to the Classroom


In response to the economic downturn, adults are returning to school in record numbers. Many seek opportunities for employment while others hope to fulfill lifetime dreams.

St Paul, MN, November 25, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Back to School for Grownups: Your Guide to Making Sound Decisions (And How to Not Get Run Over by the School Bus) provides a step-by-step guide for adults contemplating a return to the classroom. Based on the real-world experience of travelers who have successfully taken this journey, the author, Laura H. Gilbert, Ph.D. tackles tough questions such as “Am I too old?” “What about the money?” “Am I capable?” and “Is it worth it?” Next Gilbert guides the reader through program selection, sensible financing, admission, enjoying the journey and making the leap to a new field. Gilbert’s style is down-to-earth, honest and entertaining. The book is a coach-at-my-side to help readers identify their best options, whether considering a certificate or degree program, or unsure where to start. Personal stories from fifteen adult learners and survey results from adult education professionals add substance and inspiration to this timely work.

Gilbert completed four degrees as a working adult including a master’s in human resources/industrial relations and a doctorate in learning and cognition at the University of Minnesota. She has taught developmental psychology and organizational leadership to adult undergraduate and MBA students. Recently, she was asked to write an expert advice column in the St. Paul Pioneer Press’ new web page on the topic of unemployment, Watchdog: Your Next Job.
