Social experimentation aiming at preventing early school leaving (ESL)

Early school leaving (ESL) is a serious problem that not only affects an individual but the society as a whole. Although the situation of ESL in the individual EU Member States is relatively different, they follow common patterns. The EU has set the target of reducing early school leaving rates to less than 10% by 2020. Subsequently, the main aim of the Jump@School project is to successfully develop and experimentally test a new innovative intervention to prevent early school leaving. This intervention will then be tested in different countries and cities with the aim of seeing the effects of different contexts on the results of the experiment. Based on various dissemination strategies, the  results of the experiment and of the project as a whole will be made available to relevant actors particularly in the countries involved in the project (Austria, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and Turkey) but also, especially through its exploitation strategy, the results will reach a much wider audience (at least EU-wide).  This means these results will be able to inform policy thus possibly supporting the achievement of the EU 2020 education strategy of reducing the early school leaving rates.

During the initial phases of the project, existing well-functioning European practices will be analysed and compared. This will finally lead to the selection or possible creation of a new intervention that will then be implemented in schools in Italy, Spain and Turkey. To measure the direct impact of the intervention on dropout, this intervention will be scientifically accompanied and evaluated by the Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI) from the onset. The implementation of this intervention will follow a social experimental design.
