L’Abbandono Scolastico in Italia
The data on school drop-outs in Italy are among the worst in Europe. According to the Save the Children’s 2018 Educational Poverty Index (EPI), Puglia is among the Italian regions where the effects of educational poverty on children and young people are felt the most, depriving them of the opportunities they need to learn, experiment and cultivate their skills and aspirations. In Puglia, 74% of 6-17 year olds do not participate in cultural and recreational activities, and there is a dropout rate of 18.6%against a national average of 14%, with the province of Brindisi in particular holding one of the negative records on a national scale (26%).
