- The objective of this preparatory methodological report is the comparison of schools involved in the EFOP-3.1.5-16 (The support of institutions endangered by early school leaving) project with those having similar characteristics but being excluded from the project, with the aim of pointing out the achieved effects in an ex post evaluation to be conducted later. The basic objective of the EFOP-3.1.5-16 project was to implement complex and targeted institution developing programs in selected public educational institutions having pupils without qualifications and imperilled by early school leaving and in those with segregated education and training and underperforming in the national competence measurement surveys. These programs were meant to reduce the risk of early school leaving and to render pupils help to obtain qualifications and competences essential and applicable in the labour market.
- 457 institutions (task performing places) participated in the program, from which (after discussions with governmental specialists) we focused on 300 institutions (schools) (the other 157 participants were pre-school institutions). Out of this, 154 entities were included in the program based on the segregation index and illegal separation. 102 institutions were endangered by early school leaving and the remaining 44 task performing places were partner institutions supporting institution development processes. In the EFOP-3.1.5-16-00001 program all the three target groups accomplish a complex institution development process run as pilot projects in the Supporting Pedagogical Framework System. For the evaluation, a control group should be defined (counterfactual impact analysis) together with the necessary base data. Regarding the latter, the availability of data should be ensured for both the surveyed and the control group. The impact analysis will be part in the evaluation of the thematic objective of “School leave without qualification”, planned in 2020.
