While teachers, parents and politicians continue to argue over trilingual teaching in the Balearics, students appears to be failing.
It has been revealed this week that the Balearics have the highest school drop out rate in Spain.
Last year, 32.1 percent of students dropped out of school early, well above the national average of 21.9 percent.
And, the drop out level actually fell in all of Spain’s autonomous communities except in the Balearics and Valencia, where it rose.
At the other end of the table is Cantabria and the neighbouring Basque Country where the school drop out rate is 9.7 percent.
What is more compared to European drop our rates,  the Balearic rate is nearly triple the EU average of 12 percent.
Spain has the highest drop our rate in the EU followed by Malta (20.8%), Portugal (19.2%), Rumania (17%) and Italy (17%).
