Taking Control? Agency in Young Adult Transitions in England and the New Germany.
Evans, Karen
Education + Training, v44 n1 p40-42 2002
Interviews of young adults in England and Germany (n=900) about higher education, unemployment, and work showed that in Germany, ethnicity, gender, and social class had more influence on employment than qualifications did. Failure (e.g, unemployment) was attributed to Germany's highly structured system. In England, the belief that opportunities are open to all fostered attribution of failure to individuals. (SK)
