Mr Emmanuel Kereba, Kibuku’s DEO said the female gender records the most school dropouts.

“Out of 100 girls who enroll in primary one only 30 manage to make it up to primary seven and out of 100 boys enrolled in primary one, only 40 finish primary seven,” he said.

He attributed the high rate of school dropouts to the negative attitude of parents towards education and early marriages.

Meanwhile, the conference was aimed at the presentation and approval of the branch’s annual work plan and budget for 2013 to Sub BEC and BEC members from the ten sub counties.

The Union set Shs 8.8m as its budget estimates for 2013.
