EPALE’s July focus is on early school leavers and second chance education
Early school leavers are people who left school without completing secondary education or without obtaining a qualification. They are at higher risk of unemployment, social exclusion and poverty. There are many reasons why some young people leave school prematurely: personal or family problems, learning difficulties, social or financial problems. Other important factors are the school environment and teacher-student relations.
A lot is being done in the EU to prevent and reduce early school leaving. Member states are taking steps to support students, families and teachers to promote educational success for all learners.
Here at EPALE we believe in the importance of second chance education to give adult learners another chance to obtain a qualification. Check out our thematic page Second chance schools where the community and EPALE’s national teams have gathered interesting blog articles, useful resources and news on the topic (content varies based on your selected language). Don't forget to visit EPALE regularly for new content in July!
