English-speaking teens drop out of school at highest rate of all immigrants

High schoolers who immigrated from North America and Oceania are almost three times as likely to drop out of school than their Israeli-born peers, according to a report by the Knesset Research and Information Center, presented in the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee Monday.

The rate of Israeli-born high school students dropping out of Education Ministry-run middle and high schools in the 2013-2014 school year was 2.2 percent, while 4.5% of immigrants did so.

Of North American and Oceania-born teens, 6.7% dropped out, followed by 6.02% of Western Europeans and 3.49% of those born in the Former Soviet Union.
