Abstract

Understanding educational transitions is vital to addressing basic skills shortages. Efforts to address these shortages have been hampered by a lack of high-quality longitudinal data. To gather this information, a new study provides the first in-depth look at how young people move through the education system and advises on how to succeed academically despite disadvantage. Kathryn Isdale, Vijay Reddy, Lolita Winnaar and Tia Linda Zuze report on the outcomes.
