The aim of this basic research is to investigate the preconditions the planned initiative to extend compulsory education until the age of 18 can build upon. Therefore we calculate the number of young people effected and analyze their need of support. By contrasting supply and demand of support in a qualitative and quantitative perspective conclusions can be drawn, which measures should be implemented.
