Why Enter Post-compulsory Education? White Male Choice and Opportunity in an Urban Context.
Research in Post-Compulsory Education, v4 n3 p281-303 1999
A British study of 12 white males in their last school year found their awareness of labor market conditions poor; they showed little evidence of consumerist behavior in choosing their post-16 path. Some aspects of secondary education were inadequate to prepare them for the labor market. (Contains 50 references.) (SK)
