How does on handle the problems of dropout youth?
They have dropped out because they couldn't cope with studies. Or the pressure to supplement the family income was greater than the desire to get an education.
They face adversity at every point. Their contemporaries and peers look down on them. They are labelled failures, they forget to dream, they lack a vision for the future. They have no role models and there is no discipline in their lives.
Once yu get them back into the classroom their attention spans are short and they are unwilling to put in the extra effort required to catch up with their peers.
Does the solution lie in putting them into a classroom and expecting them to learn their lessons. Or does it lie elsewhere. If you reach this blog. do write in and tell me what you would do in such a scenarion.
