Abstract: This article explores how resettled refugees’ aspirations cultivated through education
collide with post-schooling realities. We find that post-graduation barriers of financial
insecurity, housing insecurity, violence and discrimination, and lack of critical awareness of unequal opportunity structures stand in the way of resettlement aspirations. We discuss how teachers and schools might be re-tooled to equip refugee students with more and different skills to navigate post-graduation situations.
