Proportion of early school leavers in the EU notably higher for non-EU citizens than for nationals

Proportion of early school leavers in the EU notably higher for non-EU citizens than for nationals

For a wide range of education indicators, significant disparities can be observed in the European Union (EU) between non-EU citizens and citizens of the reporting country, referred to as "nationals". This does not only concern educational attainment. In particular, the proportion of young non-EU citizens affected by early leaving from education and training is more than twice that of nationals. Young non-EU citizens have also a greater risk of being both out of the education system and not in employment.
