One of the problems facing European countries is that of early school leaving among young people, especially those from rural communities. The phenomenon of school drop-out among school pupils is a reality that we are facing today’s Romania and is constantly increasing. The health crisis generated in the pandemic context of SARS COV-2, as well as the measures taken by Member States to reduce the spread of the virus, has been the context for intensifying this phenomenon. Romanian schools have become unable to have the infrastructure necessary to carry out normal school hours, because the space is an improbable one and does not obey the necessary measures of social distance. The passage of schools into the online regime in Romania has made the shortcomings of the Romanian school went worse. I will analyze this topic from the perspective of a qualitative analyses based on some interviews realized. The general objective of the research is to identify the causes of school drop-out among the existing rural schools and how was affected the rural pupils of moving school courses in an online system of teaching.
