This research paper explores the issue of school dropouts in Jacobabad district, Sindh, which has become a significant concern. This study aims to identify the root causes of students leaving school, negatively affecting both students and society. This study evaluates the impact of primary school dropouts in Jacobabad's rural areas. It explains students' challenges, such as poor education outcomes due to closed schools and inadequate infrastructure. The study was conducted in rural areas of Jacobabad, and participants included teachers, parents, and students from ten randomly selected schools. The study's findings indicate that the current education system fails to meet societal demands due to poverty, illiteracy, parental unawareness, and unemployment among educated individuals, leading to high dropout rates. Data was collected through questionnaires and interviews and then tabulated and analyzed. The results were presented in percentage form.
