By degrees the first year ; from care to university by Sonia Jackson ( )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By Degrees is a report from a five-year study following three successive groups of young people entering higher education from a background in local authority care. Theirs is a remarkable achievement, far surpassing the educational attainment of the majority of care leavers. The report tracks them through their first year of university. The main purpose of this report is to help local authorities fulfil their obligations under the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 by providing adequate financial and personal support to enable care leavers to access higher education and gain maximum benefit from their time at university. The report argues that local authorities must be prepared to provide realistic levels of financial support if they hope to raise the attainment of children in their care and for more care leavers to enter higher education. The universities and colleges also have their part to play and should be proactive in raising the aspirations of young people in public care and encouraging them to apply for places

Exploration of a progressive generation : Millennial elected officials and community activists by Margaret Garvey ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Using the model of an insider ethnography this study looked to generate and promote a participant directed understanding of the meaning of a "Progressive" identity to a small group of willing participants each living and working in Arizona at the time of the study. The participants each self identified as Progressives and were between the ages of 18-36 years of age. What was discovered is this small group of young Progressives articulated a strong consensus around each of the guiding interview and research questions. They agreed that a modern Progressive movement exists and that it is growing, likewise they acknowledged a generational trend within the movement. The participants offered valuable insight into the use, usefulness and cause of the Progressive Movement and Progressive identity. Four overarching themes include; (1) Progressive is an Identity of Practice not Idealism, (2) Progressive's Aim to Change Systems of Power, (3) Progressives Seek Grounded Solutions, and finally (4) Progressives are Driven by Un-proscribed Values. This thesis is a platform and megaphone for the participants of this study. The author's hope is to bring more attention and inspire dialog about the movement, and the world, these young Progressives hope to create
