HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS RESEARCH SUMMARY:

This study sought to explore the experiences and reflections of early school leavers, their parents, and youth workers in the Chaudière-Appalaches region of Quebec. Using focus group discussions, the authors attempted to capture the voices of students, parents, and support workers. The authors analyzed these responses in order to provide the local government with better information on how to increase student retention to reduce the drop-out rate, which stood at 10.3% for girls, 17.2% for boys, and 13.6% overall in 2011 (Institut de la statistique du Québec, 2014).
