I Finished Only Primary School. Causes and Effects of Dropping Out of School and Education
Languages of publication
Early school leaving has a number of negative effects on a person’s life as well as on society, and the gravity of these effects has led to monitoring of and focused research interest on dropout rates as an important indicator of the quality of education systems. In the Czech Republic, the rate of early school leaving has been traditionally low, but dropout actors have had limited opportunities to present their points of view. The aim of this text is to introduce the views of dropouts from upper secondary education, examine the causes and effects of their early school leaving, and unravel the proverbial conundrum of causes and effects of early school leaving using a qualitative research method. The basic relationship between individual types of causes (poor choices, involuntary leaving, and disengagement) and the direct short-term to mid-term effects upon a person’s life result from the educational aspirations of the actors themselves.
