Good Starts for refugee youth

Special report 

The Good Starts Study for Refugee Youth is a Melbourne-based longitudinal study of 120 of young people from refugee backgrounds. The study sought evidence about their experiences, attitudes and social supports to inform efforts to support their well-being in Australia. The article describes aspects of the research most directly related to these young people's experience of schooling. It reports on their experiences attending an English Language School during their first year in Australia and their subsequent transition into mainstream secondary schools.
