(Teaching Council 2015)
The extent to which effective change
practices in schools can be established,
let alone sustained, is almost wholly dependent
on the degree to which teachers take ownership of those practices, individually and collectively – developing, in so doing, an effective ‘community of practice’ in those schools.

Celebrating success to minimise failure
Education is a key determinant of adult life chances across Western societies and is especially so in Ireland. Young people with higher levels of educational qualifications are more likely to access high quality employment and receive higher pay levels in the immediate period after leaving school, and these advantages persist into adult life.

(Byrne & Smyth 2009)
Defining early school leaving is by no means unproblematic - differs across Europe.
