Access to education is fundamental in determining life outcomes for all human populations. The countries of interest in this book all have highly formalised education systems, which are inextricably linked with the capacity to participate in the workforce. They are also closely linked to concepts of lifestyle and sense of place. The presence or absence of education services for self and family is regularly cited as a reason for moving to or from a place. Beyond the individual, governments and private providers plan education services around understandings of the current and future demography of a place. Communities seen as family destinations attract greater investment in child-directed schooling, for example.
