Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to compare the differences of
readiness for independent economic living between youths living in
poverty and common youths on the themes of knowledge, skills and
values and attitudes. To accomplish the purpose, the following analysis
was conducted; documentary and statistical analysis based on the
survey.
The following are the major findings of this study. First, the
economic knowledge of youths living-in-poverty was lower than average,
showing a strong aspiration to learn employment readiness skills and
financial management skills. Second, youths living in poverty had
significantly lower economic knowledge and lower will for independent
economic living than those of common youths, even catching
significantly higher skills in employment readiness. Third, it was found
that sex, family cohesiveness, and school atmosphere made very
significant effect on the readiness for independent economic living of
both youths, even some differences between the groups. From these
findings, some implications for the economic education for youths living
in poverty can be suggested.
