Abstract:
Dropping out of school has become a very common phenomenon so much that the rate of school dropout is unfavourably disproportional to the output of the educational system. In view of this the research findings herein were the result of the investigation on the nature, and causes of secondary school dropouts in Bauchi and Gombe States.

In conducting the research, a random sample of 580 subjects were used, consisting of 60 parents, 60 teachers and 460 students. Two different kinds of questionnaires were used and they include Teachers/Students questionnaire and Parent oral interview questions.
