Youth Studies Bulletin, v3 n3 Aug 1984
This bulletin contains materials--announcements, papers, and studies--that are concerned with youth policy issues and that focus on education and training. The first section, entitled QUIDNUNC, offers brief descriptions of projects of interest, reports on inquiries and reviews, and announces recent appointments. The second section on aspects offers "Hooliganism May Be News--But It Is Not New" (Mike Presdee) and "South Australia. Community Improvement through Youth" (Lindsay Holmes), which describes a program targeted at unemployed 15- to 25-year-olds in Adelaide. A section entitled Policies, Provisions, and Participation contains three articles. "Of Renovation and Corporate Humanism" (Jim Williamson), "Educational Options for Teenage Mothers" (Jane Delin) and "Participation and Equity: Policies and Directions" (C. Blakers). In the fourth section, the Victoria Ministry of Education discussion paper on post-compulsory schooling is reviewed by Richard Campbell. The fifth section, on youth studies research, contains "The Youth Labour Market: Unemployment" (C. Blakers), a summary of research on the effects of rising levels of unemployment on teenage rates of unemployment; and "Neither Learning Nor Earning" (Moira Rowland), on difficulties inherent in reconciling statistics on educational participation and labor force participation and on derivation of adequate information on those unemployed and out of school. "The Use of Social Science Knowledge in the Formulation of Policy Advice" (Don Anderson) reports on a "mini-survey" on use of social science research by policymakers. (YLB)
