Project for Preventing School Absence
The project," Preventing School absenteeism" which was carried out under the coordinator of Montserrat municipality in Valencia, Spain and Samsun Provincial Directorate of National education aims at preventing early school leaving and absenteeism.
The chairman, Hasan dağıdır said, “The students who play truant or drop out have a great risk of committing in crime. Absenteeism and early school leaving have pretty much negative effects on school, society, economy and especially the individual. In order to solve these problems, to prevent absenteeism and early school leaving, the two countries will develop a joint project and this program will be implemented in pilot schools. The program will be revised and finalized considering the problems experienced during the implementation. Activities that will engage students to the school during the implementation will also be created. Finalized project implementations will be compiled in a book and disseminated. The developed program will be presented as an offer to the higher states of education in each partner country to supply the sustainability of the program and to make it beneficial in longer terms. At the end of the project, it is expected that there will be a significant decrease in absences and early school leaving. The program will be distributed to schools after it has been compiled in a book. At the end of the year, it will be understood how effective the program is by examining the absenteeism rates.”
