Today’s teenagers appear likely to reinforce, rather than reverse, the widening gender gap in four-year college enrollment, a survey by Pew Research Center finds. The Pew study explores the views of teens aged 13 to 17 on a range of issues, including anxiety, academics and future plans. All told, 59 percent of those surveyed said they planned to attend a four-year college, but that was true for 68 percent of girls and 51 percent of boys. Twelve percent of students said they would enroll in a two-year college, and 5 percent or fewer said they would work full-time, enroll in a technical school or join the military.
