Abstract

This report presents the findings of a five year longitudinal study (2006-2011) carried out by TheCentre for Young Men’s Studies at the University of Ulster in collaboration with YouthAction Northern Ireland and funded by the Department of Education and the Department of Justice.The research was initiated in response to concerns about boys’ educational underachievement and wider concerns about boys’ health and well-being. The longitudinal aspect of the study makes a significant contribution to how we can better understand and appreciate reasons why certain boys may struggle at school and therefore not achieve more successful educational outcomes.
