RETAINING STUDENTS BEYOND YEAR 10
On Thursday June 25th from 4.30 -5.30 pm, Professor Neil Cranston will present the findings of a three-year ARC Linkage Project entitled Beyond Year 10 at a NEAT meeting. The project was a partnership between a team from the Faculty of Education and the Department of Education.
The project aimed to investigate factors that influence student retention beyond the compulsory years of schooling in rural, regional and disadvantaged communities. Students in Grades 5, 7, 9, 10 and 11 from over 75 Tasmanian schools were targeted, along with school and college principals, teachers, parents and members of the community.
The findings are significant for Tasmanian education in all sectors.
