Case Study 1: Hopeville High

Co-ed comprehensive high school;1500 students, low SES, ethnically mixed;

Early school leaving: 30% boys leave the school at 15 yrs; 95% of girls stay at school.

So what is the problem?

How can this be addressed?

Labour market conditions and training assumptions, new opportunities through collaboration with other schools and businesses.

slide7

Case Study 2: Willy Wok High

The school: 650 boys, all first or second generation migrants or refugees, predominantly Lebanese, Arabic, Pacific Islander with a growing number of Sudanese refugees; inter-racial violence; highest rate of suspensions in the State; high level of disengagement from learning - student achievement in national testing drops progressively through high school.

So what is the problem?

How can this be addressed?

Cultural music and dance program; a positive self-regulating culture; improved attendance, significant reduction in suspension rates; demand from other cultural groups to join the music and dance group.
