Tackling dropout in your respective spaces can seem like an insurmountable task if you don’t have the support and buy-in of your peers. To make it easier for you to make a difference and to rally support for the cause, we put together a list of information cards.
These cards can be shared on social media and WhatsApp to raise awareness about the need to intentionally monitor learners for signs of disengagement using the ‘ABCs’ of dropout prevention. These indicators can be used to implement an Early Warning System (EWS) to identify learners that are at risk of dropping out. We are encouraging school communities to join our call for improved data collection and monitoring to prevent dropout. We have made an EWS tool available for use by educators, click here to access it.
