Why is it important to talk (again) about middle school? This Report of Fondazione Agnelli aims to bring new evidence and arguments to give answers to the two questions, together with proposals for school policy. First of all, reminding public opinion and policy makers that the current difficulties of lower secondary school come from afar.

The report consists of two products: a complete downloadable PDF document and an interactive web application that uses scrollytelling and data visualization techniques to guide the reader in discovering the most up-to-date data on middle school.
