A Study Based on a Survey of Children and Youths Who do not Enrol in or Drop Out Of Primary and Secondary Education



This study is part of the Youth Employability and Retention Programme (YERP) which aims to address the high level of youth unemployment and irregular migration by working closely with government, the private sector and civil society to improve youth employability in BiH, while providing new entry points to the labour market. It analyses the results of a comprehensive survey that identified the most frequent causes for non-attendance of primary and or secondary school.

It attempts to answer the imposing question as to what the Government should do in order to reduce the rate of children who do not complete primary education and offers recommendations to policy makers. An example would be the need to make primary education truly free by including the provision of textbooks, and notebooks for every pupil as well as free meals and school transportation.
