CHAPTER ONE

  • INTRODUCTION
    • BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Secondary education forms the basis of entire system of education. The immense contribution it makes to the overall development of the country is indicated by the research studies undertaken in both developed and developing countries including Nigeria in order to achieve the universalization of secondary education.

Education has become the contemporary creed and about the surest way to attain self reliance and economic growth and development.

  • Ensuring the acquisition of the appropriate level of literacy, communicative and life skill as well as the ethical, moral and cruel values needed for laying a solid foundation for lifelong learning etc.

But what is discovered is drop out among the secondary school students. Society cherishes wealth and honour wealthy men and this wealth  lure the young boys and girls to pursue wealth  rather than education which is the lasting value and legacy. Another observation  is also a result of the intability of the school system due to frequent strike actions and regular changes in government thereby resulting to inconsistent policy on educational  matter such as changes in school curriculum, calendar, textbooks and policies in school administration (Obadina 1989). This study therefore investigates the reasons for secondary school drop out in Ogun State.
