Solutions to Decrease the Dropout Rate

There are many causes for the dropouts in school but instead of thinking in the bad way, there are solutions that could have a great impact on the un-motivated people in school. That is why that, in order to decrease the dropout rate, the use of solutions for dropout prevention should be put into practice by the government.

First of all, we have to motivate the students. A lot of them quit school because they find school boring and not enjoyable, therefore, the school system should be improve in a way that it could be more enjoyable for the students. That is why student should be more supported by the teachers so that they would have a good relationship with the teachers who motivate them. They should also keep the subjects interesting to keep the students happy and ready for graduation.

Second of all, the family plays a big impact on the motivation of the student because if there are family problems in their family, it will most probably make the student have less good grades and on a long time period, the student have no motivation. The support of the family for the student at school is more than very important for success.

Third of all, the extra-curriculum activities at school could also be a great solution because the students can be more motivated to go to school and have good grades because they have those activities that they like.

In conclusion, many solutions can be taken to motivate the students to not dropout school.

Those are some great arguments and a really great topic to use as an essay !

I read your abstract because we have similar topic. I think that you pointed out well what the causes of dropout are, and that it is a good idea to suggests ways to eliminate it. Do you have studies about schools that use those the methods you suggested? It would be good if you could show the concrete impact of such measures.

Good luck with your essay!

I'm commenting because your topic is interesting. You're premises are very strong and support well your argument. As suggested before, if there is any studies that support you solution, it would make your essay stronger. Apart from that, your abstract seems pretty good!

First, your title is good because it says that the text will give solutions on an important subject. I think that it is a good subject and that it is well explain. Also, the solutions that are proposed in the text are all things that I agree with because it is true that the students need to be motivated, that the family should support them and that there should be more extra-curricular activities at school to motivate them. Anyway, good work.

i totally understand your stand on this growing problem. this problem is growing by the second, according to my research in every second about 7 students dropout of high school. the solution you listed could be effective, in schools today we need counselors who are ready to help students, the job of a counselor should be to call the student aleast every school year to ask about their future ambition, for example a student could say she wants to be a doctor, it is the counselor's job to help the student work towards their goal, by letting the student know what schools are suitable and the grade requirements. and there lots more ways to decrease the droput rates. this topic is very good.

The tittle is great, and you did a good job backing up the senteces

I was really drawn into your post about dropout rates since as a student, I am witnessing many of my friends becoming less motivated and interested in school. I loved how simple your post was and how it was organized into three paragraphs. I also enjoyed the fact that you incorporated your opinion throughout your factual information. As a NewsActivist student, we have been taught to take an issue’s location into consideration when assessing it. I really believe that location can make a tremendous impact on dropout rates. For example, if you examined it from a location like the United States it would be important to notice that students must pay for their education therefore they might be more drawn to dropping out. Another example would be analyzing dropout rates in South Africa, here we would notice that dropout rates are not very high since children value their education and are privileged when they receive it. I think that keeping location in mind as well as its impact will be incredibly useful when you continue to consider the issue you addressed.
