Target for Reducing Number of School Dropouts will Not be Met

The Social and Cultural Planning Bureau (SCP) says that the government is unlikely to reach its target of reducing early school dropouts from middle schools to 35,000 per annum. In 2005-2006 there were 53,000 dropouts. The percentages are highest in schools with many non-western immigrant children. The dropout rate in one-parent families is double that of the rate in families with two parents.
