I need some assistance with these assignment. why do so many young people drop out of high school or fail to graduate from college Thank you in advance for the help! What inspires children to build mud houses or cars out of papers?  .These are but just imaginations and physical replication of what they see around them, those abilities can be induced when such children are not given the possibilities to do things themselves. The rate of school dropouts is alarming and for various reason with some geographical significance.
In some African regions where there are a high poverty rate and poor educational standard, there is a significant dysfunctional system and the path to acquiring basic education becomes very hostile thereby causing many young students to develop a lack of interest in school.
Spanking: Spanking of young students by teachers, school workers, and senior students is a norm in many African countries, young students are spanked for being late to a lesson, spanked for being absent in some lessons, spanked for failing some tests, spanked for almost everything. This sends negative feedback to young minds and creating a misconception of what education should be and they develop fear for school and some even run away from school or pretend to be ill to avoid school.
Poor educational facilities: The low standard of educational facilities creates an unconducive learning environment which hinders them from enjoying school or the process of learning, examples of such are young students studying in uncompleted buildings, studying without any equipment including toys for practical lessons, studying with limited textbooks, etc. These factors de-motivate young students and they cannot relate it to reality the reason they should suffer through these instead of learning some handiwork and earning a living from it.
Unemployment rate: In developing Nations where there is a high rate of unemployment, some parents prefer sending their kids to skill acquisition centers because it’s better than having to go through the harsh system considering the financial implications and at the end, there are thing chances of being employed (Dwyer et al., 30-55).
