Education is the most important instrument for human resource development. Child, who is a future citizen,is the first stake holder to the right of education. Education enables an individual to respond to opportunities if available or look for them wherever they are available. Education can change life circumstances for the better.
In case any dropout is identified during the drives, the parents are counseled and the child is motivated to join school. Already existing students of deprived community are encouraged to continue studies by organizing different sports, cultural, competitive programmes and also, prizes are distributed to the winners.
Economic resources are highly related to school dropout rates, but the relationship appears to be indirect. Many at-risk factors are related to family income - parents' education, single parenting, academic achievement, behavior problems and school attendance. Parent attitudes are clearly related to student engagement in learning. Parents of dropouts are more likely to view school negatively, to have minimal involvement with school and to place little value on school attendance and achievement.
Siblings as well as parents are likely to influence a student's decision to drop out of school -students who have a sibling who dropped out of school are at much higher risk of dropping out themselves. Families from diverse cultures and families whose primary language is not English also face additional barriers to school engagement that appear to place students at-risk for dropping out. School personnel may misunderstand customs and parenting styles as lack of interest in schooling, and fail to identify appropriate and effective means of promoting parent involvement in education. These students are more likely to experience alienation and to disengage from the school setting.
