CHAPTER I

THE STUDY AND ITS BACKGROUND

INTRODUCTION

Education is the key for our better future. When we are child we enter the

school by our parents to have a knowledge in all the things to improve our skills.

But why we need the education in our lives and it’s because for our good life to

have a job that suit you that you dream on.

Dropout is a student who leaves a specific level of education system without

achieving first qualification. A number of dropout students are increasing. School

dropouts have a serious negative impact on the societies. Early dropout from the

education system leading into law qualification and most often to unemployment

and other social problems is the cause for an increasing education divide in

many countries.

Entering high school can be exciting for some, terrifying for others or maybe

just another level that should be overcome. Here in the Philippines, almost all

high school students were in their teenage years, which can be considered as

probably one of the most difficult but undeniably exciting stage of a person‘s life.

There are numerous issues bombarding teens today, one of which is the lack of

direction, as to what path one must undertake to be who he wants to be, or

simply, the stage of exploration and identity identification. There are also different

factors that could bring about these issues, like peer influence and the mass

media. These are only some factors that could have an effect on their whole

being. Facing each day with these issues and influences may contribute to one‘s

performance especially in school.

This study confers on several problems faced by most high schools at

present time. These are the students who are at high risk to school completion

failure, these are dropping out from school, year retention or commonly known as

the repeaters, the balik-aral's and the students with failed grades. Dropout, the

term immediately brings to mind an image, or a myriad of images. It conjures up

long list of adjectives many of them negative (Center for Child and Family Policy,

2008).Students dropping out of school is one dilemma of the education sectors;

dropping out mean is leaving the school for practical reasons. It is an impediment

that is bugging the Department of Education not only in the Philippines but also

many countries around the globe because of its increasing rate more and more

each year. Increased rates of dropouts means that there is a big possibility that

these students may not complete the needed years in high school which may

result to future unemployment for example that can give a big impact on the

country‘s progress especially in developing countries like the Philippines.

According to Roberta Furger (2011) for some students, dropping out is the

culmination of years of academic hurdles, missteps, and wrong turns. For others,

the decision to drop out is a response to conflicting life pressures -- the need to

help support their family financially or the demands of caring for siblings or their

own child. Dropping out is sometimes about students being bored and seeing no

connection between academic life and "real" life. It's about young people feeling

disconnected from their peers and from teachers and other adults at school. And

it's about schools and communities having too few resources to meet the

complex emotional and academic needs of their most vulnerable youth. Although

the reasons for dropping out vary, the results and consequences are surprisingly

similar. Another glitch on high schools is what we call ―the repeaters, or the year

retainers; they are the students who enrolled in the same year level as in the

previous year level. It is disturbing that the percentage of the repeaters in the

country is rapidly rising and thus, having a need for attention and involvement of

concerned people to prevent its further increase. In this study, the high school

student repeaters determine the problems they have encountered that brought

them to repeat their previous year levels. Students who came back to school

after a long vacationing, and decided to continue their studies are identified as

the ―balik- aral students. Another concern of this study is the students with failed

grades; they are the ones who were unable to meet the recommended grades to

pass a particular subject. Most students probably experienced having failed

grades, some have not lost their hopes and continued despite of the

circumstance and there were some who gave up that resulted to dropping out

from school or even lost their appetite and stopped going to school. Identification

of the problems encountered by the dropouts, repeaters, balik-aral's and students

with failed grades will help the researchers formulate an intervention program

that could alleviate the augmenting rates of this school concerns. Moreover, this

study was conducted in public high schools, and as we all know students in

public schools were offered free education by the government because of socio-

economic status perhaps or the incapacity to avail the education from private

schools, and there were a number of studies that supports the relationship of the

socio-economic status of a child to his capability to stay in school and his

performance. High school completion is, of course, the most significant

requirement for entering college. Failure to complete a basic cycle of high school

not only limits future opportunities but also represents a significant loss for the

country. Although there were a number of individuals who succeeded in life

despite of failing in school, and ironically becoming an inspirational story for

some, but still it is not a fine reason for every student to discontinue studying and

cease on striving hard to complete their schooling. Let us face the fact that in

every nation, school completion is a vital thing in order to land a job. And let us

be realistic that not all can achieve the accomplishments those few propitious

individuals had done. With these premises, the researchers, chose this study to

identify and to have an in-depth understanding on the common problems

encountered by the high school students, particularly, those students who

dropped out of school, those who retained their previous year level, the balik-

aral's and the students with failed grades. Knowing the problems these students

encounter will not only help them but also, it may prevent the possible increase of

future students who may come across these issues. Why students drop out of

high school? Their reasons are many. Some are personal such as pregnancy or

the need of help support their families. Most, however are school related. Most

students who dropout were doing poorly in school, and many felt that their

teachers didn’t care.

Education is one of the cornerstones of development, particularly in a country

where majority of the population of school age. Luckily, the state of the

Philippines education system. The Grade 11 LCC Silvercrest High School need

to know what the Perception of the Students about the Factors that Cause

Students to Drop-out of School. Target to give solution to this issue.

student at LCC Silvercrest Senior High School from school year 2017-2018. This

study will start January 2019 and will be finished March 2019.

This study is limited to the third batch of K-12 curriculum Program. Students

who choose LCC Silvercrest senior High. The study limits its coverage on the

Grade 11 students only. His main purpose is to identify the common factors that

causes students to drop- out in school and purpose possible solutions regularly

this problems. Students dropping out of high school are becoming more and

more common. One thing they fail to be aware of is the cause and effect this will

have on one’s life. Dropping out of school involves many life-altering

circumstances. Three circumstances involved with dropping out of school are

causes, effects, and outcome this decision brings.

A review of various literatures and documents related to the problem and the

studies conducted by the several researchers, which have significant bearing on

the subject under study brought out some enlightening facts and interesting

observations which enabled the researchers to gain deeper insight into the

objective of the study.

● Foreign Studies

Retained students are more likely to display aggressiveness, to have a history of

suspension or expulsion, to act out in the classroom, or display behaviors

associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Conduct Disorder.

Children who are learning disabled are also more likely to be retained and in fact

are likely to be so diagnosed immediately following the retention. In addition to

poor academic achievement and low standardized test scores, retained students

are likely to have a history of numerous school changes and absenteeism. Large

family size, low parental education and low family involvement are also related to

retention (Anderson, Whipple, & Jimerson, 2008).

Furthermore, their research had several explanations for the negative effects

associated with grade retention, including:

● Absence of specific remedial strategies to enhance social or cognitive

competence

● Failure to address the risk factors associated with retention (short-term

gains following retention mask long-term problems associated with

ineffective instruction).

● Retained children are subsequently overage of grade, which is associated

with deleterious outcomes, particularly as retained children approach

middle school and puberty *stigmatization by peers and other negative

experiences of grade retention may exacerbate behavioral and socio-

emotional adjustment problems).

A study explained that the proportion of repeaters in class has a negative

and significant effect on the academic achievements of regular middle and high

school students (Lavy, Paserman and Schlosser, 2007).

One third of high school students across the U.S. fail to get a high school

diploma on schedule; for minority students, that rate falls to 50 percent; every

day 7,000 students drop-out of school. They have found the figures staggering;

what‘s more, they have profound consequences for equity and economic

opportunity in the United States. When compared with college graduates,

dropouts earn $1 million less over their lifetimes and are three times more likely

to be unemployed. A dropout is eight times more likely to be imprisoned during

his or her lifetime than someone with a high school diploma (Stid, O‘neil and

Colby (2009).

A study carried out in 2010 to determine the factors that contribute to

learners dropping out of the Secondary Education programme provided the

following answers as mitigating factors:

1. Alcohol abuse, lack of parental/ self- motivation;

2. Difficulty to cope with part-time studies; and

3. Lack of financial support to pay for examination/transport;

4. Long distances to the tutorial centers, implying higher transport costs;

5. Pregnancies, lack of family planning

However, there is no single risk factor that can be used to accurately

predict who is at risk of dropping out (Hupfeld 2011).

A research by Andrews Martin (2011), have estimated that between five and 15

percent of Australian students repeat a school year. The students who repeat a

school year are more likely to skip school, lose motivation and suffer from low

self-esteem. Furthermore, repeating a grade resulted in a decrease in academic

engagement and self-confidence among students. It lowered self-esteem and

brought no advantages in peer relationships, compared with students who did not

repeat (Andrews Martin 2011).

There are many issues concerning the problems of high school students today,

not only in our country, but a concern of all nations. The rapid increase of

dropouts, year repeaters, the balik-aral’s and the students with failed grades and

is a matter every nation should be worried about, because it does not only affect

the supply of the country‘s need for highly educated workers but also the quality

of citizens the country may produce.

● Local Studies

Studies on dropping out have attributed the phenomenon mainly to poverty. One

extensive critical review of about 50 studies on public school education described

dropouts as coming from low-income families whose parents had little or no

education, and who were unemployed or had jobs that gave them little or

irregular income. The study also identified reasons for dropping out such as poor

health due to malnutrition, distance between home and school, lack of interest,

and teacher factor. It concluded that the education system then was socially

selective since most dropouts were from socio-economically disadvantaged

backgrounds.

These facts reflect a worrisome reality about the holding power of public

schools, which is further elucidated by data on dropouts. The statistics on the

national average dropout rate for each school level has remained higher than

expected (1 to 2 %), sometimes as much as 2 digits. Moreover, even if dropouts

re-enter school at some point many repeaters eventually dropout at a later time.

Re-admission seems to have little positive effect on achievement. Moreover, it

noted that students in various gender groups, school levels, and locations are at-

risk of dropping out for various reasons. Some of these factors are common to all

dropouts, while others are more keenly associated with specific groups (Andrews

Martin 2011).

Secondary or high school female repeaters in the Philippines (%of female

enrolled) was 1.53 as of 2009. Its highest value over the past 11 years was 1.62

in 2006, while its lowest value was 0.85 in 2005. On the other hand, the male

repeaters were 4.36 as of 2009. Its highest value over the past 11 years was 4.87

in 2006, while its lowest value was 2.73 in 25. The Repeaters in the secondary

schools, in the Philippines (% of total enrollment) was 2.92 in 2009, according to

a World Bank report, published in 2010 (UNESCO, 2009).

An analysis of the Dropout Reduction Plan has found out that:

● Low family income, unemployed parents, and parents engaging in

seasonal jobs are factors which adversely affect the students.

● Parents tend to neglect their parental responsibilities towards their

children‘s education because they are preoccupied with other activities to

augment their family income. Some are OFWs, some have poor

educational background while others are irresponsible parents who are

indulging in vices like alcoholism and gambling.

● Broken family and family conflicts affected the students ‘school

performance.

● Health problems such as malnutrition and illness caused students to drop

from school.

● Peer pressure/ barkadahan, playing amusement games during classes

and even indulging in different vices are identified causes of absenteeism

and tardiness among students.

● Poor academic performance of students is brought about by being slow

learners, having low self-esteem, having poor study habit, being not ready

academically for secondary school, and non- compliance of subject

requirements.

● A good number of schools have insufficient instructional equipment and

learning facilities.

● Many teachers still resort to the traditional methods of teaching,

inappropriate teaching styles and utilization of traditional assessment of

learning outcomes.

● Some schools provide inadequate guidance program. Furthermore, some

schools do not have full-time guidance counselors.

● The students have no access to regular transportation because of the

distance and difficult geographic allocation of the school. Students get

tired hiking daily causing them to be late or absent in school.

● The presence of amusement and recreation centers such as internet café,

video games, billiard halls, video houses, etc. operating in the locality of

the school during class hours entice students not to attend classes.

From the reviewed materials, the researchers noticed a worrisome increase

in the dropout and repeaters rate in the country. Also, not enough funding from

the government contributes to these problems. But the government agencies,

particularly the Department of Education is doing the best they can to prevent

further increase of the students who repeat and dropped out from school. On the

other hand, the balik-arals or the students that are back from schooling after long

vacationing were able to continue their studies with the help of programs created

for them (Department of Education 2007).

● Foreign Literatures

School failure is a process where a student slips farther and farther behind

his peers and gradually disconnects from the educational system. The end result

of school failure is dropping out before graduation. Students can begin the slide

into failing patterns at any time during their school career, but school failure is

more likely to occur at transitional stages. Failing grades typically are symptoms

of emotional, behavioral, or learning problems.

There are four major causes of students dropping out of school: The child

him/ herself, the family situation, the community they live in and the school

environment, and in order to prevent the students in dropping out of school, the

causes listed above must be attacked (Schargel, 2012).

An article in humanillness.com (2007), averred that, people who fail in school

may feel "stupid," but emotional or mental health problems and "hidden" learning

disorders, not low intelligence, often are the root causes of their inability to meet

the standards of a school.

There are several factors that can lead to school failure; among them are

depression, anxiety, problems in the family, and learning disabilities. Retained

students are 2 to 11 times more likely to drop out of school when compared to

underachieving, but promoted, peers. Students often improve during the year

following grade retention, particularly if additional instruction is provided.

However, these gains are normally lost in two to three years. Moreover, non-

academically, an outcome of retention or repeating is associated with poor

―social adjustment, attitudes toward school, behavioral outcomes, and

attendance. Retention is a ―stronger predictor of delinquency than

socioeconomic status, race, or ethnicity‖ and is also a strong predictor of drug

and alcohol use and teenage pregnancy.

Furthermore, opponents of "no social promotion" policies do not defend

social promotion so much as say that retention is even worse. They argue that

retention is not a cost-effective response to poor performance when compared to

cheaper or more effective interventions, such as additional tutoring and summer

school. They point to a wide range of research findings that show no advantage

to, or even harm from, retention, and the tendency for gains from retention to

wash out. The critics cited harms from retention and that includes:

● Low self-esteem of the student and making them feel as if they

were mentally inferior and in turn cause them to give up on their

academics. It may also cause them to be subject the subject of ridicule

and bullying by other students.

● Increased drop- out rates of retained students over time.

● No evidence of long-term academic benefit for retained students.

● Increased rates of dangerous behaviors such as drinking, drug

abuse, crime, teenage pregnancy, and depression among retained

students as compared with similarly performing promoted students.

The possibility of grade retention has been shown to be a significant

source of stress for students. In one study of childhood fears performed in the

1980s, the top three fears for US sixth graders were a parent's death, going

blind, and being retained. After two decades of increasing retention practices,

a repeat of the study in 2001 found that grade retention was the single

greatest fear, higher than loss of a parent or going blind. This change likely

reflects the students' correct perception that they were statistically far more

likely to repeat the sixth grade than to suffer the death of a parent or the loss

of their vision (Gibson, 2007).

The students who repeated did not only suffer academically, but they

also struggled in other ways. Moreover, the students who repeated a grade

tended to be less likely to do their homework, they had more days absent

from school, they tended to be a bit lower on the academic engagement and

motivation scale, they were lower in academic confidence and they were

lower in their general self-esteem (Collerton, 2011).

School failure is likely to occur at a transitional stage agrees with

Erikson‘s Psychosocial Theory on adolescence stage wherein there is a

difficult transition between the childhood and adulthood. Moreover, it can be

noticed that there are resemblances on the factors that lead to dropping out of

school, repeating and failing on their grades and these were; the child

him/herself, the problems in the family or the family situation and the

environment or the community they lived in. Promoting school completion

encompasses more than preventing dropout. For example, it is characterized

by school personnel emphasizing development of student’s competencies

rather than dwelling on their deficits. Successful programs are

comprehensive, interfacing family, school, and community efforts rather than

offering a single, narrow intervention in one environment; are implemented

over time rather than at a single period in time; and make an effort to tailor

interventions to fit individual students rather than adopting a programmatic

one size fits all‘‘ orientation. School-completion programs have a longitudinal

focus, aiming to promote a “good outcome, not simply prevent a bad outcome

for students and society “(Christensen and Thurlow, 2007).

● Local Literatures

Ensuring that students stay in school until they complete their education is a

major concern in basic education (National Education and Testing Research

Center, 1990). Cohort Survival Rates (CSR) for the past 10 years has fluctuated

between 60 % and 80 % in both elementary and secondary levels (Department of

Education, 2008).

These statistics mean that about between 20to 40 % of Grade 1 pupils do

not reach Grade 6; of the 60 to 75 % who enter secondary school, about one-

third of them do not finish high school. If the numbers are added up, they indicate

that about half of Grade 1 pupils complete secondary level; the other half are, for

one reason or another, lost along the way.

Increasing government funding has not also completely addressed the

dropout problem. Despite the general increase in allocation for education through

the past years, the dropout problem remains one of the challenges for educators.

Contrary to expectation, allotting more funds to public education did not

necessarily bring about substantial reduction in dropout rates. This is because

increase in budget did not match increase in population and, consequently, in

enrollment. The per capita budget has actually decreased through the years. The

budget for basic education has increased by 25 per cent from 2000 (PhP80 M) to

2009 (PhP150M). However, the real value of per capita cost has decreased from

PhP6, 000 in 2000 to PhP4, 000 in 2009(Department of Education, 2009). Thus,

increase in dropout rates is not surprising despite increase in the budget because

there have been more students accommodated by the public schools than could

be adequately financed.

The dropout rates among high school students in the country have been

significantly reduced, according to the Department of Education (DepEd), (2011).

DepEd cited that 56 secondary schools across the country have reported zero

incidences of students quitting school. Sec. Armin Luistro attributed the decrease

of dropout rates to the department's Dropout Reduction Program (DORP), which

provides alternative delivery programs to keep students in school and finish basic

education. Luistro added that, ―the end -goal of the department is to retain the

poorly schooled and those who are in danger of dropping out because of difficult

social and economic situations and provide them quality education.

Escudero urged the government to work sharply to reduce, if not eliminate,

dropout rates in public elementary and high schools in six years. He cited a UN

report in 2000, which showed that in nearly five decades since the 1960s,

dropout rates at the public elementary level, had remained high, with 28 to 34

percent failing to complete Grade 6. Furthermore, stating the latest data from a

separate study he did not identify, Escudero estimated that of the 100 children

who entered Grade 1, only 86 moved on to Grade 2, 76 to Grade 4, 67 to Grade

6, and only 65 finally completed the six years of elementary education. Of the 65,

only 58 enroll in high school and 45are able to graduate (Ubac, 2009).

Moreover, drop-out rates for both elementary and secondary levels,

according to the government education agency, went up by above seven percent

and nearly 13% in school year 2005-2006, from 6.98% and 7.99%, respectively,

in school year 2004-2005.High cost of education coupled by lingering poverty

has been cited by pundits‘reasons for these increases (DepEd, 2011).

A Philippines-based foundation named He Cares Foundation, has been

provided and supported balik-aral students by rendering programs and financial

support to help the balik-aral’s to pursue their studies.

Based from the reviewed articles, the researchers noticed that the dropout

rate in the Philippines in previous years has increased and the budget allocated

for education had also increased but it doesn‘t have an obvious effect on the rate

of dropouts end even repeaters. But the good thing is, as of last year, it was

reported that the dropout rate had decreased because of the dropout reduction

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

This chapter cover the research design and methodology, including


sampling, population, establishing rigor during and after data collection,
ethical considerations and data analysis.

Research design

In order to get the answer to the mentioned problems and to justify and

satisfy the objective of the study. The researchers utilized qualitative design

since it has suitable and the most applicable to the study.

Qualitative research is a type of educational research in which the

researcher collects and works with non-numerical data and that seeks to

interpret meaning from these data that help us understand social life through

the study of targeted populations or places.

To support the study, the researchers chose to use descriptive research

design because it is best suited for the study.

Descriptive research design uses questionnaires and interviews to

gather data about a group of people. By virtue of this, the study’s statements

of the problem and the prepared research questions can easily be answered

since it will be adjust a matter of answering research questions written in the

questionnaires.

Respondents of the study

The study is intended to know the "Perception of the Students about


the Factors that Cause Students to Drop out of School in LCC
Silvercrest SHS A.Y 2018-2019"

In nature one of the vital processes to make this study successful is the

selection of population that would serve as the respondents who will help the

researchers to elaborate the data needed

The chosen respondents are the samples of the population of this study

that stood at 30 students at LCC Silvercrest Senior High School, Grade 11 as

respondents. The researchers used a randomly and were give an equal and

independent chance of being selected

Instruments Used

A survey questionnaire was used in the study as it was seemed to be the

most effective in collecting data from a large sample of the respondents. The

content of the instruments was based on the problems that needed answers,

all participants were given the same set of questions and answered it

correspondingly.

The questionnaires consist of the demographic profile (age, sex) of the

respondents, next is the details related to causes of being a drop- out that

consist of each part. First part is the Reasons From the Point of View of the

Respondents School Related Reasons, second part is the Economic and

Health Reasons for Being a Drop-Out and the third part is the Reasons

related to Society and Family Environment was assumed to be taking a great

effect to the study’s stated problems. Questions made in accordance to the

study’s statements of problem are also included in the questionnaire.

Generally, the questions included are set to cover the factors that causes

students to drop-out of School in LCC Silvercrest Senior High School, Grade

11 students. The data gathering instruments was structured as an answering

their degree of agreement with the statements continued in the instrument.

Data Collection Procedures

After planning how to gather data, formulating question appropriate for

the study and doing all necessary modifications, the questionnaires were

distributed by the researchers directly to the chosen respondents. Thirty (30)

copies of questionnaires given out were successfully completed and returned.

It was taken into consideration that all participant must be informed of

significance of the study. Thus their corresponding answers to the questions

are kept in accordance with the agreement of the participants and the

researchers. Once the questionnaires were all surely returned, data are

tabulated and tallied.The result would hopefully be the basis to know what

the "Perception of the Students about the Factors that Cause Students

to Drop-out of School”.

Data Analysis Plan

Using the data garnered, data analysis plan would encompass a number of

procedures leading to the findings or the result of the study about “Factors

that Causes Students to Drop-Out of School in LCC Silvercrest Senior High

School, Grade 11 Students Year 2018-2019”.

Statistical Treatment of Data

To interpret the gathered data, the following statistical tools were utilized by

the research:

1. Frequency is the number of times that a periodic function repeals the

same sequence of values during a unit variation of the variable.

2. Percentage is a portion of a whole expressed as a number between 0

and 100 rather than as a fraction. All of something is 100 percent, haft

of it is fifty percent, and none of something is zero percent.

3. Ranking is a relationship between a set of items such that, for any two

items, the first is either ‘ranked higher than; ‘ranked lower than; or

‘ranked equal to’ the second.

4. Weighted mean is an average that instead of each data point

contributing equality to the mean, some data points contribute more

‘weight’ than others.

Figure 1.1 shows the age profile of the respondents. The age range 17

years old highest frequency count of 14 or 46.67% at rank 1st, these were

followed by the age range of 16 years old with frequency count of 12 or 40% at

rank 2nd, then the age range of 18 years old with frequency count of 3 or 10% at

rank 3rd. The least age range was 19 years old with frequency count of 1 or

3.33% at rank 4th.

Therefore, there is enough evidence to support the claim that most of the

respondents are 17 years old.

Figure 1.2

Gender Profile of the Respondents

GENDER FREQUENCY PERCENTAGE RANK


Male 13 43.33% 2nd
Female 17 56.67% 1st
