A study of Factors Responsible for the rising number of primary School Pupils Dropouts and its Implications on National Development.
The thrust of this paper is to highlight the factors responsible for the rising number of primary school pupils’ dropout and its implication on national development. The definitions and concepts of school dropouts were outlined. Some major factors for school dropouts were identified. Efforts of the government in tackling the problem and its implication on national development were enumerated and discussed. Conclusion and recommendations were presented. It was recommended that government needs to show strong commitment and ensure that all necessary teaching and learning facilities were provided. An enabling law should be enacted by the government in order to curtail the menace of early marriages among school girls. Finally, parents, teachers and communities should make meaningful contribution towards arresting the ugly trend.
