Summary This book presents the results of the project on young adults with low levels of education, conducted jointly by the OECD and the Canadian Policy Research Networks. It examines the extent to which young men and women with low levels of education are marginalized, the role family background plays in making it possible to complete the recognized minimal level of education, and how immigrants overcome the cultural and language gaps to find employment.--Publisher's description
