Description/Abstract

This book offers a wide-ranging perspective on how young people and their parents make choices as they travel through a lifetime of education and training. It challenges traditional views of how choices are made of primary school, secondary school, college, university and career, and shows how choices depend upon a range of factors including young people's personal experiences, individual and family histories and their perceptions of education and careers. The book compares choices fopr 5 to 11 year olds and for 16 and 18 year olds, drawing out models of the decision-making process, and at the same time the consequences on schools, colleges and individuals of 'enhanced choice'.
