Every child is different and it is extremely important to know the differences to be able to solve this problem. Children who find it difficult to adjust to new surroundings stop going to school, this is where the role of teachers come into play, they should sit with the children and try and understand their problems. Some children may be shy and will not even disclose their problems, the teachers and the parents should sit together and sort their problems out. The children should be made to realize the gravity of the situation; they should be told that their future would be ruined should they drop out of high school. No employer would recruit them without a degree and the only way of getting a genuine degree is by attending high school. They should also be told about the importance of money and how important it has become these days to earn well and live a good life. All these important things must be told to them and it should be told in a way they can understand only then can the high school dropout rate be brought down. “KIDS are dropping out of school as early as year 7 without any follow-up, a Springvale police officer says. Youth resource officer Leading Sen-Constable Leanne Cooper said many parents were happy to have their children at home, citing at least one 16-year-old girl who had not attended school since she was in year 7.” Almost all these problems can be solved and the rate of high school dropouts can be brought down significantly.
