School Dropout Monitoring Slovakia CIES Conference, Honolulu March 2006. Center for Education Policy by Marcela Maslova [email protected] Defining School Dropouts on the compulsory education level. Difficulty to make the line between dropping out and truancy
Who is responsible for the dropout problem in our country?
First of all the parent (or the guardian)! In a wider context also school and other institutions organizing leisure time activities of young people.(Miriam Trupova, Coordinator of criminal prevention, Regional Authority and Frantisek Sinka, Board of the Slovak Government – criminal prevention)
This problem should be approached by new policy, novelisation of the law. I think that first of all Government and Ministry of Education is responsible. Then also teachers, principals, school administrators and parents.(Nora Lepejova, School Councelling Center)
