Sudanese Young People of Refugee Background in Rural and Regional Australia: Social Capital and Education Success
Major, Jae; Wilkinson, Jane; Langat, Kip; Santoro, Ninetta
Australian and International Journal of Rural Education, v23 n3 p108-120 2013
This article discusses literature pertaining to the settlement of African refugees in regional and rural Australia, particularly focusing on the specific challenges and opportunities faced by Sudanese young people of refugee background in education. Drawing on a pilot study of the out-of-school resources of regionally located young Sudanese students, we discuss the role of social and other capitals in generating conditions that may facilitate educational success for these students. We argue the case for educational research that takes into account the resources and capital upon which Sudanese young people of refugee background and their families draw in order to achieve in education.
