El abandono temprano de la educación y la formación es un indicador clave del sistema educativo que condiciona la estructura económica y social, por lo que su reducción es una prioridad dentro de la Estrategia Europa 2020. España presenta la tasa de abandono más alta de la Unión Europea, registrando amplias diferencias interregionales. El artículo estudia la incidencia de los factores educativos, económicos y socioculturales en el nivel de abandono de las comunidades autónomas, utilizando como metodología datos de panel para el periodo 2001-2011. Entre otros resultados, se verifica la importancia del gasto educativo como medida para reducir este problema. The early leaving from education and training rate is a basic indicator in the education system that has influence on economic and social structure. Thus, its reduction is a priority for the Europe 2020 Strategy. Spain has the highest early school leaving rate among the European Union, showing strong interregional differences. This article studies the impact of educational, economic and sociocultural factors on the early school leaving rate at the NUTS2 regions. We have applied a panel data methodology for the period 2001 to 2011. Among other results, expenditure on education appears as a relevant measure for tackling this problem.
