Determinants of Factors Influencing Dropout in Public Primary Schools in Rural Sindh
Dropout of young students from schools in the province of Sindh has impacted the performance of students and teachers alike. A high rate of dropout adds to the illiterate and less-skilled workforce of the nation resulting in more economic stress on the country. This research is addressing the issues of young students’ dropouts from primary schools in the province of Sindh. A random representative sample of n = 167 male primary school students and n = 154 female students from primary schools in Sindh participated in the study from Hyderabad, Sukkar, Ghotki, Nawabshah, Dadu, Badin, Larkana, Jacobabad, Noshero, Tando Jam, Tando Adam and Sangharh. Independent sample t-test tested the developed hypotheses. The major findings emphasize that primary education dropout rate in the province of Sindh has reached an alarming stage as a result of professional negligence and poor check and balance system among all such schools in province. The study suggests reforms in educational policy and practices with respect to primary education in the province to prevent dropouts
