Fewer school drop-outs for the first time in decade

THE number of children in Andalucia dropping out of school early has fallen for the first time in 10 years. It appears that Andalucia’s youths have realized the importance of training and studying if they want to find a job in the future, leading the number of pupils who drop out at between 18 and 24 to fall by 30 per cent, according to the Ministry of Education.

For the whole of Spain, figures have fallen from 31.2 per cent of pupils leaving school in 2009, to 28.4 per cent in 2010.

However, the EU demands that these figures drop to 15 per cent at the most for 2020, which will not be easy, by the Ministry of Education and the Junta de Andalucia Education Council are pleased to report youths are on the right path.
