Abstract: The focus of the paper was to analyze the rate of dropout among secondary school students in Abia State, 1995 – 2000. Four research questions were raised and answered. A sample of 120 students who had withdrawn from secondary schools were randomly selected from the 17 local Government Areas of Abia State. The instrument used in gathering data comprised a structured questionnaire and checklist. The data were analyzed using frequency, statistical mean and percentages and the following findings were made: that students dropping out of school was a common phenomenon in all public secondary schools; that the rate of drop out was higher among male than female students; that the magnitude of drop out was higher in second ary schools in rural than urban areas’; that the society-based perceived factors were identified as the most important factors influencing drop among secondary school students in Abia State.
