It’s important to stress that Europe needs to be prepared on all its fronts to face these new realities. Early school leaving results from social disadvantage and, at the same time, perpetuates the risk of social exclusion and, perhaps, radicalization. School, teachers, trainers and tutors “play a key role to help people who are at risk of early school leaving, including those who have dropped out already”.
