To prevent this problem local community leaders are trying to search for various issues that may lead to high school dropout. One of the major factors of high school dropout is the territory which one surrounds him/herself with this being the peers you are associated with. Unfortunately these actions bare their own costs this include the likelihood of that learner being a lower earning individual or worse unemployment maybe another case. Various aspects will be discussed from the impact that teachers, families and the community have in order to alleviate high school dropout, to the government’s involvement in high school

All of these aspects sound good for the high school level, however, they can be the polar opposites of how students are treated in college. Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week.
Being at work constantly has impacted their school attendance, making them miss school on a frequent ba-sis. Certainly, this influences their academic performances and in the end can result in increased risk of dropping out of school. In particular, the risk of dropping out school also relates to income constraint within the household. The bigger number of working household members im-plies a larger shared income within the household that could reduce the proba-bility of dropping out school. Additional income collected from multiple fami-ly members could alleviate financial problems within the household.
or graduate from high school: factors associated with individual characteristics of students, and factors associated with the institutional characteristics of their families, schools, and communities. Cecilia E. Rouse (2010) in his research pointed out that there are a number of reasons. One is economic. Dropping out of school is costly both for dropouts themselves and for society as a whole. First, Dropouts have difficulty finding jobs.
This is because some kids need to get a job at a very early stage in their life so that they can be able to help out their poor families. Besides, when students are forced to stay in school they can cause problems for those that are in the classroom with them. Raising the minimum dropout age might not stop all dropouts, as it is still up to the students to decide whether or not they should drop out. Many reasons can cause a student to dropout, so they should not be required to stay in school until they are
An increasing high school dropout rate is due to the fact that our education system is a grade-based system, that uses standardized tests to measure ones intelligence and achievements. Students who don’t measure up as well as others in terms of their grades, begin to quit at an earlier stage in education, with the belief they aren’t good enough to succeed in further education. With education inflation, the grade standards and pressure for students, are at a constant rise, which makes it more difficult for students to excel. For example, if a student was once a B grade student, they could easily be downgraded to a low C, because of the increasing competitive rivalry amongst students. As shown in Figure 3.
For example, Cara Roberts (spokesperson for Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce) states that kids who are struggling in school should get vocational education instead of punishment. According to “No-pass, No-drive:Effective Answer to Dropout Epidemic?”, by James Marshall
One of the main causes of student dropouts is financial issues. College is very expensive, and students attending a community college or a university tend to have a solid reputation for being poor due to these expenses. These students already have a numerous amount of payments to make, such as buying books or supplies and paying tuition fees. Not only that, but most college-age students are living on their own for the first time. This means
