Abstract

This Study Presents The Current Factors That Contribute To School Dropouts Of Girls In Mixed

Day Secondary Schools In Budaka District Particularly In Kachomo Sub-County, With A

View Of Developing Possible Solutions To The Problems That Leads To The Fore Mentioned

Subject.

The Study Was Guided By The Following Objectives; To Determine The Extent To Which School

Based Factors Influence The Girls’ Drop Out In Secondary Schools, To Establish The Influence

Of Pregnancy On The Dropout Rates Of Girls, To Determine The Influence Of Distance To Schools

On Dropout Rates Of Girls, And To Develop Measures That Can Be Adopted By Schools To Cab The

Problems.

The Study Adopted Simple Random Sampling Techniques To Sample Its Respondents And

Vividly Get The Required Data Which Contributed To The Outcome Of The Study. Since The Study

Primary Data, It Employed A Descriptive Survey Research Design Which Was Suitable To

Produce Statistical Information On The Topic. The Data Was Collected Through Questionnaires

And Interviews To Collect The Required Information Which Was Analyzed Both Qualitatively

And Quantitatively Using Statistical Tools.

The Study Found Out That Average Age Of Dropouts Among Girls Is Under Intervals 1 6-20

Years With A Percentage Of 46%, With 75% Of The Respondents Also Responding That School

Based Factors Cannot Influence Girls To Drop Out Of School In Kachomo Sub County, Budaka

District. While A Great Percentage (100%) Of The Population Agreed That Pregnancy Has

Affected Girl Child Which Is Supported By The Longer Distances Moved By Students As It Was

Responded By 70% Of The Study Population. Not Only Did The Study Find Out That Parents Lack

Clear Knowledge About The Importance Of Girl Child But It Also Found Out That Teachers Do Not

Carry Out The Required Career Guidance Talks To Both The Students And The Parents About The

Need And Power Of Girl Child In The Community. In Conclusion, Despite The Government

Efforts To Provide Equal Access For Boys And Girls, The Latter Are Disadvantaged Due To Socio

Economic, Social-Cultural, And School Based Factors. The Parents Should Be Sensitized About

The Importance Of Girls’ Education So As To Understand Their Role And Involvement In Their

Girl Child Education. Every School Should Be Mandated To Organize General Parents’ Meeting

To Enable The Parents To Meet Teachers And Discuss Problems Affecting Their Girls’ Education.

These Paients Should Be Advised To Motivate Girl Child To Remain In School.
