By Gill JonesYoung people are becoming increasingly sharply divided between those who have and those who do not. At a time when the major policy thrust is to combat social exclusion, the report shows how difficult this will be. Despite investment in education and training, inequality continues and becomes more extreme. Polarisation of experience occurs in every aspect of transition to adulthood. The youth divide provides an overview of the changes in transitions to adulthood and proposes ways of overcoming the processes of social exclusion.
