23 SES 13 B, Youth on the Move – Transitions in Times of Uncertainty (Part 3))
Symposium: continued from 23 SES 11 B, 23 SES 12 B
Economical crisis has had a deep effect on education policies in both EU and national levels so that is has profoundly changed the way education is arranged. The marketization and privatisation of education shape educational policies and practices in various ways so that education tends to be viewed as a product that is consumed by customer-students. Short-term and project-based education is especially targeted to young adults who are seen as dropouts from ideal and linear transitions between school and working life. On EU and national level the both educational and social policies and practices has focused last ten years developing the skills for employment—when talking about social issues the stress is on education. The cause of social exclusion is often detected on lack of education and "having nothing reasonable to do. Views of young adulthood as the age of immaturity, uncertainty, difficulties and turmoil reinforce this idea of young age as something that needs governing In this paper I will ask how the young adults 'at risk' are constructed and governed in educational policies and practices in European Union and in Finland. As a data I will use education policy documents from both EU and Finnish level.
