Australia is a country of extremes. Many of its young people live in busy urban and suburban settings while others live in remote, relatively undeveloped regions. The country has high educational standards and near universal literacy but also a significant number of struggling students. Australia’s young people are stressed out about their grades and their social lives and yet they are open to the many changes taking place in their country and hopeful about the future. Featured are an overview of the country as well as insights into how Australia’s youth experience home and family, education and work, social life, and more.
