Fighting early school leaving

Description

Description

The Education and Training 2020 Strategic Framework (ET2020) drives EU cooperation in Education and Training; it contains four key objectives and seven benchmarks. Two headline targets from the Framework have been top-ranked on the Europe 2020 agenda, namely on reducing early-school leaving and increasing levels of tertiary attainment across the EU.

To render this more tangible, five headline targets in the areas of employment, innovation, education, poverty reduction and climate/energy have been set for the EU to achieve by the end of the decade. One of the headline targets is to reduce school drop-out rates to below 10% and increase the share of young people with a third-level degree or diploma to at least 40%.

In 2013, the level of early-leavers reached 11,9% while tertiary attainment topped 36,8%. The headline targets in the field of education and training are therefore about to be reached, even though those figures hide sometimes strong regional disparities (8 Member States had a difference of more than 15 percentage points between their top and bottom regions in terms of rates of tertiary education graduates in a region ). In the framework of the EU2020 mid-term review, a reflection on the relevance of indicators in education and poverty reduction has been initiated.

Early-school leaving is one of the priority areas for European co-operation in Education and Training 2012-2014 a part of promoting equity, social cohesion and active citizenship.

There is an Open Method of Coordination (OMC) thematic working group (TWG) for the ET2020 Strategy in place which tackles the topics of Schools, including early-school leaving and the Teaching Profession.

ET2020 Thematic Working Groups have just undergone a revision after the Council’s request in February 2013. Their new mandate focuses on implementing the ET2020 agenda and build tighter links with the European Semester, and their number has been reduced to match key policy challenges. Their results should be regularly presented to the Education Committee of the Council and national representatives should turn over within the TWGs representation in order to gain more ownership on what happens there.
In ADAM 1660 projects can be found when entering the search term early school leaving.
