This paper summarises findings from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) project on early school leavers in Australia. It considers who leaves early; attitudes, aspirations and reasons for leaving; what early leavers do after they leave; non- completers of Year 12; and some issues and policy implications.
