    Abstract

    Dropout normally occurred amongst high risk learners who experience failures in school examinations and absentees. Various interactional factors influenced the probability of dropping out from school. Academic, social, emotional and societal factors are reported to influence dropouts. In Malaysia dropout prevention strategies have been an important national agenda in the Tenth Malaysia Plan as well as in Vision 2020 to reduce the gap in academic achievement. The objective of this study was to examine effective dropout prevention strategies according to the perceptions of teachers and parents. The study involved a focus group session with 20 secondary school teachers and 20 parents who were in the Parent-Teacher Association of the school.
