FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO FEMALE STUDENTS DROPOUT IN SECONDARY SCHOOL

FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO FEMALE STUDENTS DROPOUT IN SECONDARY SCHOOL

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study
Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) witnessed the increase in the enrolment of the female students during the 1990s with the gender parity rising from 0.83 to 0.88 percentages in  2000 for primary education and from 0.63 to 0.82 percentages at secondary level at the same year (UNESCO, 2006).This means that with every 100 male students enrolled there were 88 and 82 female students at primary and secondary education levels respectively. This is the ratio of female students to male students where the gender parity index of less than one expresses gender parity in favour of male students and where more than one gender parity index expresses gender parity in favour of female students. It has also been observed that in spite of all these gains in developing countries where an equal intake in enrolment rate is observed, two thirds of those leaving school before completing the third year are girls(Netft and Levin, 1999).

According to Neft and Levin (1999) this was projected to double by 2005 with more girls
out of school. A number of studies have indicated the small percentage of girls who received formal education at primary level, secondary and post secondary level in Africa
(UNESCO, 2010). According to the UNGEI (2005) report, girls’ education has been a
priority in most of the developing countries including Nigeria. Responding on the
Nigeria education girls’ program condition, the United Nations Girls Education
Initiatives (UNGEI) was launched in Nigeria in November 2002. In collaboration with
Forum for African Women Educationalist (FAWE) Nigeria, United Nations Children
and Education Fund (UNICEF) supported a national forum which was convened in
November 2004 to build partnerships in Nigeria and propose modalities to build future
implementation of girls’ education strategies.

Statement of the Problem
Investment in education in Nigeria through the provision of secondary education in the
community secondary schools is geared to develop human capital (skills and knowledge of students). However, these effects have been hampered by unacceptable higher rates of dropouts more seriously affecting female students. In addition, increasing rates of
dropouts for female students threatens the efforts to promote gender equality in accessing to and benefiting from the secondary education.
