Nowadays students usually drop out of school, to get a career. More than before job seekers are looking for people who have at least finished high school. The fact that students drop out of school is caused for different reasons. There are three main causes why students drop out of school: they can't afford tuition, they prefer to work, and they fail the course.
One reason which students decide to drop out of school is because they don't have enough money to afford it. There are a lot of families that are unable to afford the college tuition fees even since primary school, these families earn the minimum salary. In other circumstances are only able to pay college for one member of the family. Public universities are the cheapest universities, but not all students have a chance to get into the university, thus they cannot study.
When students get a good job, they prefer to attend their job, and for this reason they drop out of school. Usually they get a job while they are studying too. After a while, they find out that they prefer working instead of studying. It is difficult for them to leave their job because they need money. Sometimes they find out that they will have a better future by working than studying.
Another reason why students don't finish high school is because they fail the course. Sometimes students have problems with some subjects, especially Mathematics and English, so they fail the subject and as a consequence the whole course. They have the opportunity of taking the course again, but they prefer not to do it. I think students who don't want to study. As a result, they prefer working in easy jobs where they don't need to think.
Finally, students usually drop out of school for three main reasons: money, a good job, and academic failure. There are more cause but these are the most common in Malaysia. I think to drop out of school is not a problem, well that depends on the cause. I hope...
