Against School Drop Out
Early school leaving is the result of a mix of individual, educational and socio-economic factors. Many triggering effects make ESL a complex multisector phenomenon: school failure (disengagement, low achievement, transition between schools and school levels), pull effects from labor market, social and family situation. If it differs from country to country and from region to region, there are some recurrent features: children from vulnerable groups are more likely than others to leave the school system early. Boys are more affected than girls.
Thanks to the constant work on drop out preventive and intervention measures carried out by all 2YOUNG2FAIL partners, the partnership has pinpointed the need to focus on a specific age framework (10-15 years, including both Middle school, and moments of transition between school levels) in a broad number of regions, to tackle the issue, and potentially intervene when the problem starts arising.
