DESCRIZIONE DEI CONTENUTI:

The report addresses the following four questions:
1) Why do young people leave secondary school before graduation?
2) Which factors help to ensure that they stay in school or return to complete their
diploma?
3) Do these risk and protective factors vary in nature and/or relative importance across
different populations of young people?
4) What are the implications of the research for policy and practice?
The report’s authors conducted an international literature review on socio-demographic factors associated with early school leaving and prevention and intervention strategies and initiatives for preventing early school leaving.

The report’s authors also made consultations with youth, parents, school personnel, academics, and policy makers regarding the issues surrounding early school leaving.
They also examined the issue of student disengagement from school from the perspective of key
stakeholders (school teachers, guidance counsellors, principals, parents/guardians) via focus
group interviews.

The report also clearly describes the methodology used to investigate in the above issues.

COMMENTO SULLA PUBBLICAZIONE:

The Report is very well structured and the results described are very interesting even if they are particularly focused on Canadian environment which is quite different from the European one.
