'57 million students were out of school' in 2011, according to the UNESCO statistical institute. Poverty has been considered the out of main determinants of 'Drop-Out'.
Despite being provided free elementary education to all the rate of drop-outs is not decreasing up to satisfaction. Having the same solution always and the situation is as it was, then there must be different reasons for the prevailing problem. The problem is more psychological rather than financial what I think. I have seen students dropping out the school for many reasons. Absolute poverty can not account for 'Drop-Out' on its own, although it may account for delayed entry into a school and high repetition rates. Poor quality education is considered the other reason of school 'Drop-Out'.
Here is a video 'Make Your Teaching Counts' which can clearly show the reason of 'Drop-Out'.
What I think the main determinants of Drop-Out is the lack of up-gradation of teachers and the environment provided to students. I would say 'the system which is updated regularly may last for a long.The trained teachers, taken as percentage, are expected to influence the Drop-Out rate negatively. The trained teachers can motivate the students and devise new techniques to build interest among children and thereby can lesson school Drop-Outs.
The economies, which are not willing to upgrade their education system having an unremitting problem of Drop-Out. The solution lies in the up-gradation of teachers by equipping them with technology. Which would create interest for schools among students and amplify the influence of a teacher.
The other reason of Drop-Out is 'Pupil Teacher Ratio'; Presence of more students per teacher, poses problem in service delivery to the students to their needs. This results in lack of motivation among students, feeling of boredom and also lack of hope among parents and guardians. This is expected to have a positive impact upon Drop-Out. Again the solution lies in technique (Google Apps For Education).With less number of Google Apps Teachers, problem can be pulled off.
It is seen that Kids are very 'Fast Learner' of technique. Here I would say "Google Apps For Education" can do miracle as it holds all nature to motivate the students to utilize their vested capabilities and enhance their skill. We have realized that a child playing with technique, put more energy in his efforts and their concentration is amazing. This can be taken as his learning style and needs support and solicitation.
I have realized that teachers working with Google Apps in their class,are more enthusiastic, full of energy, internally motivated, committed and result oriented. If I talk of learners playing with the technique like toys is able to create a new world of his imaginations. Surely, There would be no chance to leave the school for him even for a moment.
