Hesse: Program to support young people who are at risk of leaving school

Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - Hessen has a rate of 5.4 percent for school leavers without a secondary school leaving certificate, which is below the national average. The "Pusch" program and many other measures would contribute to the fact that Hesse has done well for years in the school dropout rate in the national comparison, said Minister of Education Alexander Lorz (CDU) on Thursday in Wiesbaden. According to the information, the national average was 6.2 percent.

Schools throughout Hesse take part in the "Pusch" program (practice and school). The participating young people should be supported as early as possible at the general schools and prepared for the secondary school leaving certificate. According to the ministry, they learn three days at school and two days at work or at vocational school.

In addition to teaching basic skills, the program is also largely about increasing the self-esteem and motivation of young people, said the minister. The corona pandemic has also increased the number of students who find it difficult to learn. Young people from socially disadvantaged families in particular would have to struggle considerably with the effects of the pandemic. The program is financed from state funds and funds from the European Social Fund.
