Abstract

Drawing on research findings, this article attempts an ‘eventalisation’ of the implementation of On Track, a recent initiative in Victorian postcompulsory education policy. Annelies Kamp argues that On Track can be understood as an act of surveillance that not only manages but also produces a risk that is deemed manageable by government. While there is a growing recognition of the need to understand youth transition in late modern times as being a ‘recursive state’, the governance framework persists in constructing youth transition as partaking of panoptical time that compels us to attend to progress, precocity, arrest, or decline through initiatives such as On Track.
