from 12.00 to 13.30
In 2022, 9.6 per cent of European students aged 18 to 24 years dropped out of school with no more than a secondary school leaving certificate, without obtaining further education or vocational qualifications. International literature has long emphasised that it is reductive to use the term 'drop-out' to refer only to students who do not complete their studies.
In the course of the meeting, the psycho-educational interventions implemented by the Associazione Maestri di Strada, which has been engaged in the fight against school drop-out in the eastern suburbs of Naples for over twenty years, will first of all be described.
Furthermore, the results of an initial study aimed at investigating the point of view of the Maestri di Strada on the 'dispersion phenomenon' and the dimensions associated with it will be presented.
Starting from these narratives, it will be possible to reflect on the role that trust (or mistrust) towards the educational institution and the future plays in this scenario.
