Modern European society is beset by various problems. Early school leaving (ESL) is regarded as being one of the most pressing. In the last two decades, it has been placed high on the EU policy agenda and various promising solutions to the problem have been identified and policy, research and practical approaches to address it developed and implemented. This scientific monograph may be seen as one of them. It has been prepared as the scientific base within the TITA project (Team cooperation to fight early school leaving: Training, Innovative Tools and Actions). The three-year project forms part of the programme Erasmus+, Key Action 3 in whose framework the European Commission conducts policy experiments in order to test and improve policy implementation systems, structures and processes that have a potentially significant impact on the future EU policy agenda. By covering in detail the three main pillars of the TITA approach – early school leaving, team cooperation and educators training – the monograph beings valuable scientific insights into the topic also to the wider interested research, policy and practice community in the EU and beyond.
