In order to conclude a 3 year engagment on combatting early school leaving in the regions via mutual learning, the AER working group on early school-leaving is now compiling a handbook with a collection of good pratices. Several of these good practices have been showcased during the different meetings. Others have been identified and shared within the context of the ERASMUS+ project Joint Efforts To Combat School Dropout (JET-CD), which just ended.
The idea of the handbook is to highlight regional good practices and compile them in a format, which allows for quick analysis and comparison in order to facilitate the transfer of good practices between regions. On the occasion of the AER Fall Plenary meeting in Izmir, the working group agreed on the structure of the handbook and the template for good practice description.
Now all AER member regions are invited to contribute to the handbook and help raise awareness on the need to address early school leaving. Early school leaving, indeed, is a growing severe problem, which has social, economic and health impacts on society.
The handbook will be organised as follows: there will be a short introduction and three chapters around the three pillars for action, which are prevention, intervention and compensation. Each chapter will feature best practices. The definition for prevention, intervention and compensation derive directly from the JET-CD projet
Contributions should be sent by 31/12 by using the template, to Ilona Novak, who has been coordinating the working group on early school leaving on behalf of the region of Västernorrland (SE)
