Abstract:

Education should be the dynamic form of philosophy of any nation. India desired to adopt a socialistic way of life. As education is the only means to bring about the desired social change, a vast amount of money has been spent on education by the state. The present study was undertaken in 8 villages of Midjil mandal in Mahbubnagar district, Telangana state. Though the school education department succeeded in increasing the enrolment ratio in Mahbubnagar which is the most backward district in the state, it still continues to witness the highest dropout rate. 60 school dropouts were selected for the study. Interview method and self-developed questionnaire was used for data collection. The selection of the participants followed purposive sampling method. Ex post facto research design was used for the study. The findings of the study and conclusions confirm that personal reasons, peer group influence and family environment are all related to school dropout.
