Conference report : reducing early school leaving : efficient and effective policies in Europe /

by European Commission. Directorate-General for Education and ulture.

Publisher: European Commission 2012Description: PDF. 18 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2012Summary: "Professor Mariano Fernandez Enguita from the University of Salamanca, Spain, addressed early school leaving and school failure in the context of the growing difficulties schools have when it comes to attracting the attention of young people, providing relevant education in times of new media and information overflow and helping young people gain the most relevant skills they will need in future. ; Royston Maldoom, a British choreographer working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, looked at the perspective of young people who lack the necessary confidence and self-esteem to develop their skills. He gave a vivid account of how challenging them in dance projects shows them ways of reaching their objectives, not only on the dance floor. ; In four workshops conference participants discussed the challenges of developing a sufficient evidence-base to better target policies against early school leaving, of establishing co-operation across policy sectors such as education, youth, employment and health, of addressing drop-out from vocational education and training, and of promoting different forms of learning to keep disengaged young people in education and training. ; In their conclusions participants highlighted the need for strong political commitment, to involve children and young people, but also their parents and local communities in policies against early school leaving, and to support teachers and other education staff in their work."Availability: (1)

How are youth homelessness, early school leaving and risky behaviours connected amongst 13-16 year olds? /

by Fehring, Heather | Victoria. Department of Education and Early Childhood evelopment | Shacklock, Geoff | Crowhurst, Michael.

Publisher: [Melbourne, Vic.] The Department 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 23rd April 2008 Bibliography : p. 9-19Summary: The co-morbidity, or the co-occurrence and/or interconnectedness, for 13-16 year olds of homelessness leading to early school leaving leading to risky behaviours and the reverse, risky behaviours leading to early school leaving and then homelessness is a reality for Australian society. The risk trajectory, i.e. one risk factor reinforcing another leading to an escalation of disadvantage is a well established fact. Furthermore the magnitude of this problem has recently been highlighted by the April 2008 Australian Homeless Youth Report. This paper examines the relationship amongst the three factors of homelessness, early school leaving and risky behaviours and identifies some of the key issues and considerations involved.Availability: (1)

The study explores relationships between non-completion and selected socio-demographic and school-related factors, and changes in rates of school non-completion from the early 1980s to 2005. There is a particular emphasis on how socio-demographic and school-related factors over that period have influenced early school leaving. This study also examines the use of an alternative measure of school completion , which incorporates participation in a vocational education and training program after leaving school." -- Executive summary.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
