Establishing of Early School Leaver Monitoring
System for Roma Students in Primary schools

Project Summary

Early school leaving (ESL) of Roma students is one of the biggest challenges in educational process in many European countries. Many strategies, policies, measures and recommendations against ESL, on the highest EU level, were prepared, but they didn’t made expected impact, especially on the basic level of practical implementation e.g. primary schools. In accordance with performed Surveys among primary schools staff, the same conclusion can be made: Usually institutions and other relevant authorities react afterwards when the process of leaving schools is active and it is almost non-stoppable. Therefore instead of precaution actions which are far more effective, there are always post-caution actions with temporally and/or very low quality effects.

The project will be realised by six project partners – one NGO and one primary school – from 3 countries /The Republic of North Macedonia, Bulgaria and Greece/.

Main project goal is implementation of a new strategic approach by development of Early School Leavers Monitoring System (ESLMS), which will be used as a respond system for possible ESL cases. ESLMS with included software application, adaptable for any situation and education institution, will be used as early warning system for possible ESL cases. Software based part of ESLMS will allow teachers /after recognising the very first signs of possible case of ESL/ in relatively short time period, by using of software application, to get a set of proposed actions how to react (or instructions what they have to pay attention to).

With aim to achieve best possible results from project realisation, PPs determined as necessary to have a combination of following activities:

Expected Results:

During the realization of the project activities following results are expected:

The main impacts which project have aim to made is to promote a successful implementation of a new ESLMS based approach in tackling of ESL challenge, as well as the importance of transnational partnership among different organisations and teachers networking as a proven approach for more efficient education.
