Officials from Nyabihu District says, of 415 students who dropped out through the year, only 115 are yet to make a fresh return to their respective schools, after the district has injected incredible efforts to push students who dropped out back to school.
David …., the District Education Officer in Nyabihu District says that the issue is getting weakened in comparison with a recent study that recently reported dropout rate of 5 per cent student in Primary and 3 per cent in secondary schools in the district.
Davis points at family problems to be the major cause behind children’s dropout. He says problems like malnutrition, child labor and family conflicts are major threats that push children think of dropping out of school.
But David outlined tough measures to end the school dropout issue so that children get back to their respective schools.
“Some measures we have taken include increasing public awareness and mobilization because people’s mindset does not appear to be good enough. We decided to conduct community awareness from the village level as well as holding school meetings with children’s parent and stakeholders for joint efforts with students to mobilize students who dropped out of their schools to go back to school,” he said.
According to the 2013/2014 Integrated Household Living Conditions Survey (EICV 4), 17 per cent of children supposed to be at school in Nyabihu District have never been at school comparing to 14 per cent at the country level.
