    Education matters because it is intrinsically valuable, allowing children and young people to develop intellectually, socially and morally. It also matters because, in Ireland, as in many other countries, education is a powerful predictor of adult life chances. Young people who leave school early do not reach their full potential and experience restricted opportunities across many dimensions of their lives. A new study by Emer Smyth and Selina McCoy,† addresses the costs of early school leaving to the individual and to the broader society. The study draws on a range of information to assess outcomes among early school leavers and to analyse policy interventions designed to prevent school drop-out.
