Schools of Success – S. O. S.
Description of the project
The main role of school is to teach how to study, rouse thirst for knowledge, make children know the
joy of completed work, taste the excitement of creating something, learn to love what they are
doing, and find the job they will love. – Albert Szent-Györgyi , the scientist, the academic, the
inventor of vitamin C wrote this.
We would like to create the School of Success during the two years of the project. The acronym of
our project is S. O. S., since these days with suppressed emotions we continuously desire for little
success in our everyday life. The best scene for this can be school life.
The core idea of our project has been developed several years ago. Since then we have been
searching for, following the national and international statistic data, the possible answers and the
educational actions taken in this field with our international partners.
The increasing dropout rate and the increasing number of people without a profession have become
an important issue, since it has an important effect on people’s life and on the economic status of a
country. Both at international and national levels innovative, generative programs and actions have
been called for from primary to vocational training and higher education. In several countries
institutions apply shadowing systems and dropout data to help early intervention.
