The percentage of 16-year-olds continuing in education has fallen for the first time in seven years, according to the local authority associations.

The school leavers destination survey, released this week (LGC, 12 April), shows the proportion of 16-year-olds continuing in education fell from 83% in 1994 to 81% in 1995. Graham Lane, chairman of the Association of Metropolitan Authorities education committee, said: 'The increased costs students face are driving some out of education.'
