Student Transitions

This project examines the context and paths that young people follow as they move from initial education to working life, often combining the two. Through a series of interrelated studies, the projectís inquiry is based on the notion that these transitions are governed by access to educational opportunity, on the one hand, and access to productive employment on the other. Such transitions are influenced by the nature of schools and schooling, by the nature of the economy, and by the labor market.
