Education in Spain – Dropout rate highest in EU

Spain’s early school leaving (ESL) rate has consistently fallen in recent years as employment Spain flagoptions become extremely scarce, but remains nearly twice the EU average, at 23.6 percent in 2013.

That’s down from 24.7 percent in 2012, but still way off the national target of 15 percent and still the highest in the EU, the EU’s newEducation and Training Monitor reveals.

The latest issue of the yearly report says that the employment advantages of finishing upper secondary education are lower in Spain than in the rest of the EU and that while vocational education and training (VET) opportunities had improved a little, this area was also being affected by harsh cutbacks in spending on education as a whole.
