Significant Risk Factors for Dropout Rural schools,
like urban and suburban schools, are trying to improve their graduation rate and lower their dropout rate.
 The factors that make a student at risk of dropping out are actually found in four domains
 _individual, family, school, and community
—so it is important to understand what these factors are in order to identify appropriate solutions.
 The National Dropout Prevention Center, in partnership with Communities In Schools, 
 identified the following individual
family, school, and community risk factors . The report cited identified individual and family risk factors with a solid research base, whereas the school and community risk factors identified below were not as strongly supported in the literature. Their reliability as researchbased factors are on a very different level and should be considered as likely factors. Individual Risk Factors • has a learning disability or emotional disturbance • high number of work hours • parenthood • high-risk peer group • high-risk social behavior • highly socially active outside of school • low achievement • retention/overage for grade • poor attendance • low educational expectations • lack of effort • low commitment to school • no extracurricular participation • misbehavior • early aggression
Family Risk Factors 
• low socioeconomic status • low parental education level • high family mobility • single-parent homes • number of siblings • family disruption • having a family member who had dropped out • low parental expectations for educational attainment • lack of parental involvement with the school • few conversations with parents about school School Risk Factors School Structure • Large school size, particularly for low SES schools has also been linked to higher dropout rates. School Resources • High student-teacher ratios were found to be linked to dropout in  schools

The Effects of Dropping Out of School in rural town specially in zimri town 


One way in which people are affected by their decision to drop out of high school is a greater chance of being unemployed. The unemployment rate for young high school dropouts was roughly 54 percent in 2008, according to a report from the Center for Labor Market Studies. The same report states that the unemployment rate for those who merely completed high school was significantly lower, only 32 percent.

Lower Income

When high school dropouts do find employment, they earn, on average, significantly less than those who completed high school. A 2006 report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development stated that high school dropouts in America earned a mere 65 percent of what their peers who completed high school earned. Of all the countries included in the report, the difference between these two groups was the largest in the United States.


Incarceration in some sort of correctional facility, such as a jail or juvenile detention center, is also a more likely scenario for high school dropouts. According to the Center for Labor Market Studies, only one percent of students who complete high school end up incarcerated between the ages of 16 and 24. However, 6.3 percent of high school dropouts end up incarcerated at some point between the ages of 16 and 24.

Missed Opportunities

Another, less tangible consequence of dropping out of high school is missing all the different opportunities that come about as a result of finishing high school. High school is a good place to explore intellectual interests, play team sports and meet friends. By completing high school, students can also go on to a post-secondary school and further expand on those opportunities. Even if they choose not to, they leave that option open for later in life.
