Publisher: [Melbourne, Vic.] The Department 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 23rd April 2008 Bibliography : p. 9-19Summary: The co-morbidity, or the co-occurrence and/or interconnectedness, for 13-16 year olds of homelessness leading to early school leaving leading to risky behaviours and the reverse, risky behaviours leading to early school leaving and then homelessness is a reality for Australian society. The risk trajectory, i.e. one risk factor reinforcing another leading to an escalation of disadvantage is a well established fact.

This paper examines the relationship amongst the three factors of homelessness, early school leaving and risky behaviours and identifies some of the key issues and considerations involved.Availability: (1)

Child Poverty Action Group NZ 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2011 Bibliography : p. 41-47Summary: "Hunger for Learning reports on an important piece of work undertaken by the Child Poverty Action Group.
