This final chapter provides an overview of our volume with attention to the central premise of the underlying Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage project: the value of ymμ1g peoples' participation in Flexible Learning Options. The preceding chapters examine the social, economic and political contexts in which FLOs operate, their philosophies of education and praxis, and their qualitative and quantitative impacts. To conclude, we consider the ramifications of these research findings in the domains of educational practice and policy in Australia.
