In May 2002, Eurispes carried out a sample survey on 562 middle school and two-year high school students in the provinces of Lazio. The research looked at the relationship between the interviewees and the school as a whole, with the aim of identifying problematic areas where potential phenomena of school drop-outs could hide. According to the Ministry of Education’s data on state and non-state schools, in December 2001, in Lazio, school drop-out rates at middle school (0.1%) and at high school (0.7%) were lower than the national average (0.3% and 0.9% respectively). However, from the Eurispes survey some signals emerge which, because of their exemplarity and their cognitive value, can be effectively inserted in the national debate on the modernisation of the school institution and on the need to adapt the quality of the educational offer to the demands of the users and of the labour market.
