The Commission published a proposal for a Council Recommendation on Pathways to School Success, outlining a set of concrete policy measures to address early school leaving and the low achievement in basic skills (reading, mathematics, and science) of 15-year-olds, and in particular of those stemming from a disadvantaged background. These measures address the needs of learners, teachers and trainers, of schools, and education systems. They include monitoring, prevention, intervention, and compensation, but with a strong focus on prevention and early intervention. The proposal also calls for increased attention to wellbeing at school, which has a strong impact on educational outcomes and is a key component of school success.
The Commission’s proposal will be discussed by Member States and then adopted by EU education ministers. The Commission will then support the implementation of the Recommendation through learning and exchanges between Member States, partners and partner countries.
