Post-secondary education pathways of New Brunswick youth

This internship will investigate the role which demographic, familial, individual and school level factors play in students’ pursuit of educational pathways in New Brunswick. Differing educational pathways can be defined as being either typical (e.g. a high academic achieving student pursuing post-secondary education), or atypical (e.g. a high academic achieving student dropping out of high school or completing high school but not pursuing further education). Previous research has shown that academic achievement is the greatest predictor of future educational pathways.
