Dropout Rates among Kuwaiti students in Public Education

Auther : Jasim M. Al-Hamdan

Dropping-out is one of the common educational problems with causes difficult to identify. However, it is alleged that we can reduce dropout rates through preventive measures. This study attempts to assess dropout rates of Kuwaiti students in public schools over the past ten years (1976/77 - 1985/86) and postulates measures to reduce the size of this problem.

Findings indicate that dropout rates increased dramatically in the post - liberation period compared with rates in the pre-Iraqi invasion phase. Moreover, it is found that dropout rates are at their lowest among pupils in primary schools; and at their highest among high school students. Females show higher rates in both the primary and secondary schools. However, the case is reversed among students in intermediate schools.

Generally, results have shown that dropout rates among high school students are higher among science students than among literary students.
