college drop out rate in the philippines for the past 5 year
Transcript of college drop out rate in the philippines for the past 5 year
Education in the Philippines is weakly robust to support high economic growth and needs extensive reform including greatly increased resources. All levels of education in the Philippines have deteriorated over several decades, faced with an increasing young population that has outstripped available resources.
Insufficient Preparation or Motivation
Transitioning from high school to college can be a rude awakening, as studying, developing time management skills and prioritizing become far more critical. Some students never find a balance between social life and studying.
Too Much Stress
Even if students can afford tuition, the immense stress, pressure and little sleep some must endure when having to juggle work and school often become too much to bear.
More adults are choosing to return to college while raising children. Because children, spouses and the college- bound parents all feel the effects of that decision, 16 percent of the Public Agenda study participants who dropped out said they needed to spend more time with family. Other family situations affecting studies include taking care of ill parents or other loved ones and working to help struggling parents make ends meet.
Main obstacles included being overwhelmed by studies, taking required courses believed to be unnecessary, feeling bored and claiming classes were too difficult.
Increase in Tuition
“The average tuition rate both at the national level and in the National Capital Region (NCR) has doubled under the Arroyo administration,” Kabataan Rep. Raymond Palatino said in a privilege speech on May 18 titled, “The Tragedy of the Philippine Education.”
Financial reasons were a major cause for school leaving among secondary school dropouts. Many of them had to work (50%), lacked money for projects (50%), and for daily allowance or pocket money (41%). Those who had to work part - time were also beset by school- related problems.
Palatino criticized the practice of some schools to get profit even without increasing tuition. “A school can forgo tuition increase and they can boast that there is no tuition hike. But it does not say that there is an increase in miscellaneous fees, in superfluous and exorbitant fees,” Palatino said in an interview with Bulatlat.
“Such policy has proven to be very profitable to school owners. Unlike tuition, miscellaneous fee of all sorts are not included in the tuition increase consultations provided under CHED Memorandum No. 13, the guidelines for tuition hike applications, which was recently re-implemented following the lifting of the tuition cap,” Palatino said in his speech.
While researching all the rates of other colleges we have found out that there are many causes, effects of dropout rate here in the Philippines. This study shows us how the dropout rates increase as the year continues.
Causes of College Dropouts
While many high school graduates go on to college, some eventually make the difficult decision to drop out. A 2011 National Center for Education Statistics report estimates that only three out of every five four- year college students graduate within six years. Most dropouts leave college before entering their second year, according to the College Scholarships website, because of one or more influential factors.

Many simply can’t afford the rising costs of college tuition.
Within the same time frame, the average family income increased at a much slower rate of less than 150 percent. Some take a leap of faith and believe they will find a way to pay for college as they go along, but soon find out it is not possible
Many at-risk factors are related to family income - parents' education, single parenting, academic achievement, behavior problems and school attendance. Parent attitudes are clearly related to student engagement in learning and graduation rates: Parents of dropouts are more likely to view school negatively, to have minimal involvement with school and to place little value on school attendance and achievement.
Peer relationships: Dropouts are more likely than non dropouts to report social isolation and lack of involvement in school-based social activities. While dropouts tend to be involved in community-based activities, those who remain in school build social networks connected to school activities and develop a sense of "belonging" to the school that seems critical to continued engagement.
In addition to school wide strategies and programs, individual teachers and support staff can help encourage school involvement for students at risk for dropping out:
Focus on student goals: Instead of focusing on why the student is unsuccessful in school, have the student identify what he wants to get from the school experience. Have him/her list school, home and personal barriers to reaching that goal. Sometimes talking about getting past the barriers to reaching a goal helps focus efforts more productively than just complaining or quitting.
Encourage school involvement: Encourage the student to attend school regularly and to be involved in at least one extra-curricular activity at school or with groups of students who are currently in school. These activities make the student feel part of the group, important to the school and more motivated to perform in order to participate.
Consider alternative school settings: Speak with the parent, school counselor and/or school psychologist to see if the student's goals can be reached in the current school environment. If not, discuss options for alternative settings. Include the student in all discussions with school personnel.
Consider realistic post-secondary goals: Not every student is appropriately college-bound. Help the student to identify strengths and areas of interest, and to explore career options that maximize interests and skills. If attending college is the way to reach the student's vocational goal, help set steps in place to get there.
Identify special needs: Consult with parents and other school personnel to determine if the student might have a specific learning or behavior problem interfering with learning. Low achievement, retention in grade and behavioral difficulties are highly predictive of dropping out of school.
