This report sets out the findings of a review of the research evidence on early school leaving (ESL) in Europe, with particular reference to young people identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities.
The review primarily focuses on published material that directly relates to the situation in one or more European countries and that is available in English. However, there is a paucity of research that meets these criteria. European research literature has therefore been supplemented, where necessary, by literature from other parts of the world.
