Choices and Challenges explores the experiences of young people moving from junior to senior cycle education. It looks at how student learning experiences and relations with teachers and peers change over this important transition. It examines how students choose among Leaving Certificate programmes, subject and subject levels, placing these decisions in the context of their junior cycle experiences.
The book is part of a series about the lives of young people as they move through the schooling system and provides an important evidence base for discussions about senior cycle reform. It should be of interest to principals, teachers, guidance counsellors, policymakers, parents, teacher educators, and the wider academic community.
