Preventing School Failure: Review of the Literature published

30 September, 2019

The Agency has published a new Review of the Literature as part of the Preventing School Failure (PSF) project.

The PSF project, which began in 2018, examines the evidence to suggest that inclusive education policies have the potential to prevent school failure – both in relation to individuals and the overall system.

The project focuses on desk research, incorporating two parallel strands. The first strand reviews and analyses European and international research literature on preventing school failure. The second strand focuses on existing national policy measures for preventing school failure.

This Review of the Literature is the result of the first strand of project activities. It gives an overview of European and international research on the prevention of school failure in relation to inclusive education. It aims to show how inclusive education can prevent school failure and identifies key concepts and themes underpinning policy and practice for preventing school failure. Its findings will inform and complement the second strand of the project and the development of the project synthesis report.

The PSF Review of the Literature is available to read or download in English on the Agency website.
