In Chapter Three, Ross Fergusson takes a critical look at the impact of government policy on young people – namely, school leavers. This chapter is an engaging and enlightening examination of this relatively under-researched area in social policy. Fergusson presents the issues of school leaving age and training for young people in an interesting historical and political economy framework which allows us to see the key links between the economy, social instability and social control and the school leaving age. As he also makes clear, the politics of the school leaving age are also complex and surprising.

Keywords:   government policy, young people, school leavers, school leaving age, training, social instability
