During the research on "Causes of high dropout of girls in Upper Primary",
much was discovered, which indicated to the research to the research
that since the Universal Primary Education programme, parents send
boys and girls to school. The problem of school fees which used to limit
them was no longer there.
However, it has been found out that as girls grow towards adolescence
stage, the parents begin to discourage and even retain them at home to
do domestic work. They begin preparing them for feminine work. Also
with the high birth rate which has continued unchecked, girls are often
retained as baby sitters in the homes on the grounds that can do it
better than their counterparts, boys.
It was also found out that the ,;ou, ,:oeling s,1v1,.c i he girls received at
school were inadequate. This was evidenced by the fact that some
teachers who would be their counselors abuse them sexually. It was also
discovered that as these girls mature, they begin forming informal groups
whose attitude towards education was negative and this had led to
dropping out of school.
Some parents think that girls are sources of income or wealth, and that if
they stayed at school longer, they would grow old hence fetch no bride
price for the home. This indigenous view has been one the causes of early marriages. Through sensitization, parents should know that given an opportunity, girls can measure up to equal levels with their counterparts academically.
