Many dropouts back to school

Many dropouts in the Netherlands have gone back to school to accumulate credits and graduate. According to figures from the Dutch Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS).

Thirty percent of the students who dropped out in school year 2004-2005, have gone back to school again last year.

At the end of that year, half of them accumulated credits and graduated from HAVO, MBO or VWO.

Women tend to finish their education more often than men, according to figures published by Dutch Statistics. Native Dutch people go to school more often than immigrants.

College dropouts who go back to school usually have a better idea of what to expect from higher education and more clearly defined outcomes.

If you’re planning on going back to college after dropping out, do you think that you’ll perform better than you did the first time around?
