School dropout is a serious and challenging problem. We are aware of this challenge. This awareness motivated us to do many studies on early school leaving. As a collection of chapters by various authors, this book is just one of those efforts. We do really hope that the book will raise awareness about school dropout and help those working on this issue all around the world.
