Draft Council Recommendation - tabled by the European Commission on 30 June 2022 - focusing on early school leaving and low achievement in basic skills. This is a text with EEA relevance.

Further information:

The draft Recommendation outlines a set of policy measures aimed at addressing early school leaving and the low achievement in basic skills of 15-year-olds, in particular of those stemming from a disadvantaged background. These measures address the needs of learners, teachers and trainers, of schools, and education systems. They include monitoring, prevention, intervention, and compensation, but with a strong focus on prevention and early intervention. The proposal also calls for increased attention to wellbeing at school, which has a strong impact on educational outcomes and is a key component of school success.

The text was put forward by the European Commission on 30 June 2022. It followed up on an assessment focusing on the implementation of the previous Council Recommendation addressing school leaving, which the draft Recommendation aims to repeal and replace.
