Push, Pull, and Falling Out Factors of Dropout
« on: July 11, 2018, 10:18:54 AM »
Pressures on students of push and pull dropout factors. A student is pushed out when adverse situations within the educational environment lead to consequences, ultimately resulting in dropout. These include tests, attendance and discipline policies, and even consequences of poor behavior. However, students can be pulled out when factors inside the student divert them from completing Education. These occur when factors, such as financial worries, out-of-Education employment, family needs, or even family changes, such as marriage or childbirth, pull students away from Education. They can even include illnesses, as these cause students to put a greater value on something outside of Educational Institute, and therefore they do not complete Education.

The third factor called falling out, which occurs when a student does not show significant academic progress in Educational activity and becomes apathetic or even disillusioned with completion. It is not necessarily an active decision, but rather a “side-effect of insufficient personal and educational support”. Also, more than push or pull factors, falling out factors highlight a process in educational institute dropout whereby the student gradually increases in behaviors or desires of academic disengagement, yet without being forced out by the institute (by push factors) or lured out by things they need or want (by pull factors). As a result, these students eventually disappear or fall out from the system.

The key difference between push, pull, and falling out factors has to do with agency. With push factors, the institute is the agent whereby a student is removed from institute as a result of a consequence. With pull factors, the student is the agent, such that attractions or distractions lure them out of education Finally, with falling out factors, neither the student nor institute is the agent. Instead, circumstances exist that neither the institute nor the student can remediate, and as a result, the connection students have with education gradually diminishes. Although there seems to be a similarity between pull and falling out factors in terms of both involving an action of the students, the definitive difference is that pull factors have a distinct object working as an attraction/distraction that is sought by students, leading to dropout, whereas falling out factors lack this attraction/distraction.

Fall Out: The Number of Fall out will highly unlikely return.
Pushed Out: The Number of Pushed Out get less of our attention in terms of effort.
Pulled Out: The Number of Pulled Out get higher of our attention and effort of followup and promotional offer to re-involve them in education.
