Students that attend evening high-schools in Greece are mainly adults that missed the opportunity of graduating during their adolescence. They can be working-persons that belong to vulnerable social groups, from areas with intense social problems. The additional burden of studies in their daily workload may discourage them from completing their second-chance education. To prevent dropout, intervention projects have to be planned and implemented by the local educational authorities. Systems Inquiry is a comprehensive conceptual framework of Systems Science, which provides planning tools that may successfully assist the educational authorities in conducting relevant intervention projects.
