The causes of teachers dropout were broadly categorised into two groups, i.e. institutional factors and socio-economic factors. From the analysis it was found out that economic backwardness of the family was one of the most important causes contributing to the phenomena of dropout. Children are used as economic assets to the family at the age of nine and ten. As the family size is big in comparison to their income level, the parents are unable to provide their children with reading and writing materials, dresses and other educational expenses. Besides these factors social evils like illiteracy, ignorance of the parents about education are major factors for causing dropout at primary level. Hence, it becomes evident that children of the lower socio-economic condition are found to be more prone to drop-out than children of higher socio-economic status.
