School Drop-Out Levels Increase

 EDUCATION Authorities have revealed the dropout rate in Spain’s schools is over a quarter, reaching numbers as high as three in every ten pupils.

The area holding the worst record for school leavers is Andalucia, which is over 32% alongside the Balearic and Canary Islands. The European average according to official figures is 15 per cent, making Spain twice the average and one of the highest in Europe.

It is thought that the reason for the high statistics is due to young adults leaving school early in order to gain work experience as the economic crisis continues and employment levels continue to decrease.
