Are young people's educational outcomes linked to their sense of control? /

by Baron, Juan D | University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied conomic and Social Research | Cobb-Clark, Deborah.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne Institute working paper ; no. 5/10.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper analyzes the link between young people's sense (locus) of control over their lives and their investments in education. We find that young people with a more internal locus of control have a higher probability of finishing secondary school and, conditional on completion, meeting the requirements to obtain a university entrance rank. Moreover, those with an internal locus of control who obtain a university entrance rank achieve somewhat higher rankings than do their peers who have a more external locus of control. Not surprisingly, there is a negative relationship between growing up in disadvantage and educational outcomes. However, this effect does not appear to operate indirectly by increasing the likelihood of having a more external locus of control. In particular, we find no significant relationship between family welfare history and young people's locus of control.Availability: (1)

This paper examines the literature regarding disadvantaged job seekers and barriers to employment in areas such as poor health and physical disability, mental health, domestic violence, substance abuse and lack of social support. It then looks at the policy context and program approaches in Australia, the United States and the European Union. Common elements of good practice are highlighted and implications for PSP in Australia are identified.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
