The Minister of Education, Claude Meisch, will present this Tuesday the plan to extend compulsory education from 16 to 18 years old. The plan will be explained in detail at a press conference scheduled for 10:30 am.

The measure was announced by the government official in September 2021 to combat school dropout, but was approved by the Council of Ministers only on February 11.

"We cannot leave this youth without an opportunity for the future", said Meisch in September of last year.

According to Claude Meisch, in the 2019-20 school year alone, around 1,670 students dropped out of school. More than a third of students who drop out of school in the Grand Duchy are aged between 16 and 18, a rate considered "too high for the Government".
