Quotation Nairz-Wirth, Erna. 2015. Understanding and preventing early school leaving. European Commission/School Education Gateway.




For a long time, the problem of early school leaving was seen purely in psychological terms and attributed to shortcomings in the individual. This is now an outdated view, since it ignores possible shortcomings in structural provisions (such as the lack of support in the early stages) and the responsibility of the school as an institution. A consensus has in the meantime been reached amongst researchers that dropping out of school is a significantly more complex phenomenon, and that each case has a distinct history whose roots can frequently be traced back to kindergarten.
