The study revealed that; Girls do not complete the primary cycle and drop out due to early marriage, defilement and rape, child neglect, lack of interest, negative attitudes among others. Parent-teacher support for the girls is inadequate. Embarking on community mobilization and sensitization, inter ... meetings and organizing school open days are some of the parent-teacher involvement that can be enhanced.
