School feeding programmes that aim to provide nutritious meals to children are likely to have the ‘uble benefit of improving attendance and general well-being of children. There is not one single Lervention that will solve the complexity of the process of school dropout. It is important to take to account the possible externalities of different interventions. Perhaps the only two policies that n be used to directly tackle the problem of drop out are on-time registration in Grade I and tornatie grades promotion throughout primary school. Nevertheless, these policies alone are likely to lead to ‘meaningful access’ as described by CREATE unless accompanied by general empowerment in the demand and supply of primary education and importantly the quality of that ovision. As discussed by Hunt (2008), We enrolment and high-grade repetition are only two of the ecursors of drop out Irregular attendance and very low achievement are other precursors of drop it and these may have very different causes than late enrollment and repetition. In addition, the ocess of drop out is affected by a number of individual, household, school and community factors. Interestingly. different policies and interventions exist to help families overcome disadvantage and Marginalization. It is unclear however whether these policies and interventions have implementations that can impact upon children’s completion of primary school.
