New report on the value of preventing school failures

About ten percent of all students in upper secondary school, does not manage to complete their studies. This result in large economic losses for the society at large, and unnecessary human suffering. The road to a social marginalization typically begins with school failure. A new report shows the economic value of preventing school failure with national economic models.

The report Samhällsförlusten av skolmisslyckande och värdet av att rädda fler i varje årskull is written by Lena Hök and Nima Sanandaji and is published by Skandias foundation Idéer för livet.
