The Changing Context of Australian Youth and Its Implications for Social Inclusion
Wyn, Johanna
Youth Studies Australia, v28 n1 p46-50 Mar 2009
Efforts to monitor and improve young people's school-to-work transitions have not generated a discernable change in patterns of social inclusion among young people. Educational approaches that promote social inclusion need to take account of the changing social and economic realities with which all young Australians engage, and address important aspects of young people's lives such as identity and wellbeing. Despite attempts to respond to the changes in young people's learning needs, there is a disjuncture between educational policies that continue to frame education within an industrial model and the requirements that young people themselves have for the capacity to be good navigators through new economies, to live well, and to engage with complexity and diversity.
