Family factors related to school drop out in Chile: A case study

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Higher dropout rates observed among poorer population force to restore this phenomenon in the educational policy agenda. By solving that problem it will be possible to break up the circle of exclusion and to assure a better future for youths living in vulnerable areas. In this scenario, the present article has as its main objective to assess the presence and specific weight of a set of family factors in the contexts of primary level dropouts from Cerro Navia, namely one area of the city of Santiago in Chile which is known for its high poverty levels. The study is based on quantitative information obtained from a survey applied to a sample of 304 boys and girls living in this area who left school before completing the primary cycle. The results confirm that dropouts usually come from families with certain characteristics which have been identified by scholars as potential causes for abandoning school. However, the underlying processes through which such family factors exert its influence on dropout rates still remain unclear.
