Growing up in 2000 : Follow-up of 400 children from birth to their 18 years old.

Growing up. 1989-2008.

Conducted by the aSPe between 1989 and 2008, Grandir en l’an 2000 (Growing up in 2000), is the only truly longitudinal research ever carried out in FWB. A sample of 400 children from the area of Liège was followed up from their birth to the age of 18 years old, through regular data collections in families, children themselves, schools and teachers. The objective was to identify family and school background factors that could be acted on to modify the school career towards success. A particular feature of the research is that it started on a broad and positive concept of school success at the age of 18: school success is indeed characterized not only by no failure and no grade retention, but also by some aspects including the socio-affective development of the individual (self-perception, social adjustment, socio-occupational project, etc). Various profiles were established and helped to highlight the necessity to help young to define their own study or occupation project, mainly if they take occupational school tracks.
