Dropping Out of School in Australia: Recent Trends in Participation and Outcomes.
Lamb, Stephen
Youth & Society, v26 n2 p194-222 Dec 1994
Examines changes in the characteristics and outcomes of school dropouts in Australia during the 1980s. Schools recruited more broadly among females during this period, which weakened the association between dropping out and social background. For males, social differences remained entrenched. Both genders experienced steep increases in unemployment during the first 12 months, with boys more likely to find work afterward. (GLR)
