Just doing a bit of research for a thesis topic and have come across a few frightening figures in terms of Education Disadvantage. In 2007 over 1100 pupils failed to make the transition from primary to secondary school education. Even though there are new programmes and initiatives that have been set up since, early school leaving is still a major problem that is often overlooked in schools.
It will be an encounter that every teacher will have to face in their careers. How can we as teacher keep pupils in schools??
