Educationists the world over have acknowledged that school dropout is one of the most vexing challenges in the provision of education among adolescents. Studies have shown that while school dropout is common in both developed and developing nations, it is most rampant in the developing world. Ironically, though, the problem seems to be least understood in developing countries- not much research has been done to venture into understanding the problem. Zambia has not been spared the effects of school dropout. As is the case in most developing countries in Africa, school dropout in Zambia has been found to affect rural adolescents more than it does their urban counterparts. This book therefore seeks to enlighten readers about the factors that influence adolescents to drop out of school in rural communities through an in-depth study of a rural community of Southern Zambia. Through the unique triadic approach of viewing school dropout through the eyes of the young people who dropped out of school, their parents, and teachers who taught them, this book demonstrates that school dropout is a complex problem that is influenced by a variety of interrelated factors.
