This chapter explores the discourse and phenomenon of ‘early school leavers’ (ESL) through a policy lens from the United Kingdom, Norway and Denmark and from an international critical theoretical perspective. We look at political documents to find out how ESL and the young people involved are perceived. This chapter will equip the reader with an overview of a range of frames on ESL and the impact those have on societal attitudes, educational practices and, ultimately, young people.
