ABSTRACT The study examined the impact of the fishing industry on school drop out in Ggaba Trading Center with specific objectives on attitudes of parents and trading center administrators towards students working in the fishing industry, reasons why they work and the challenges they face. Two schools namely; Ggaba Parents Secondary School (GPSS) and Ggaba Model Primary School (GMPS) were used. A total of 100 respondents that included; learners, parents, teachers, employers and administrators were used. It was both descriptive and analytical where primary and secondary were used. Primary data were got from interviews, observation, focus group discussions and questionnaires. Documentary review was used to gather secondary data. Microsoft office excel 2003, statistical data analysis method was used to analyze data. The attitudes respondents on working learners were; family poverty, child abuse, lust for money, negative attitude to education, impact of free education, maladministration, irresponsible parenthood, and acquiring of personal responsibilities. Learners worked because they wanted to supplement parents' provisions, high demand for cheap labour, for survival, irresponsible parenthood, lust for money, entertainments, low levels of education need to acquire skills and low levels of sensitization among the general community. The challenges learners faced were; non payment to some students, water accidents, inadequate training, maladministration, loss of employment, permissiveness, fixed school programs and child sacrifice. The study recommends the government through funding institutions to extend low interest loans to people sensitize the public about the impact of child abuse and education and make free education more accessible. Employers to learners should be censored and penalized in cotnis of law for those that do not learners. Functional Adult Education should be given to adults to get more skills so that they do not depend on child labour.
