Keywords:
Understanding the factors that drive the educational aspirations, choices, life chances and imagined
futures of young people in different geographic settings is important for designing appropriate policy
responses. The role of ‘geography’ in the deliberations of young people is a key aspect. In this
instance ‘geography’ encompasses the influence exerted by neighbourhood and school characteristics
in determining the aspirations, choices and chances of young people who live in places characterised
by socioeconomic disadvantage. This paper looks specifically at the influence of geography on young people in urban fringe, rural and regional areas in Australia and its effect on their post-school labour markets and education and training opportunities.
