Abstract

Providing right type of education to the right people at right time is the key to human resource formation. Dropout is defined as the children proportion ceasing to continue enrolled in the school. The present study examines the various causes that are responsible for the middle school dropouts in Jammu and Kashmir with special reference to district Pulwama. The study is purely based on primary data collected from 240 respondents by using stratified random sampling. The study finds that there are three types of causes; school related causes, family related causes and personal causes. As far as school related causes are concerned poor accommodation is the main cause. In the category of family related causes, the most important cause is that the parents feel that girls are only meant for household activities. The third category is the personal causes. Most important cause in this category is the reluctance of parents.
