The handbook provides valuable insights and best practices for educators to support students' participation and prevent early school leaving by addressing their psychological needs, such as security, identity, belonging, purpose, and competence. Furthermore, it offers a contextual adaptation of best practices from partner countries, aiming to strike a balance between various strategies, tools, and competencies to combat dropout rates effectively.
