Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to identify the major reasons(causes) that influence pupils to drop out of school at primary level in SNNPR and to forward suggestions so that the problem would be minimized. To carry out the study, twelve primary schools were selected from six zones using the purposive or judgement Sampling technique. One hundred forty-four primary school pupils(72 returnees and 72 non- returnees), twelve principals, and 36 teachers have filled in the questionnaire. Twelve pupils from grades 2,3, and 4 and l5 parents and/or community members as well as 6 ZED ( Zonal Education department) offficials were used as data source using interview questions. In addition, data on pupil enrollment, dropout. and repetition were Collected from the statistical documents of MOE, SNNPREB, and from the rosters and other documents of the sample schools. The obtained data were analysed using statistical tools such as percentages, means, the chi-square, and the rarik order correlation coefficient. The results of data analysis have shown that student dropout is the function of the in-school and out-of-school reasons. Among the in-school factors that have greatly intluenced pupils to drop out of school in the region, incomplete grades of the school level, shortage of school supply and lack of encouragement from teachers were the major ones. Regarding the influential out-of-school reasons, pupils' involvement in income generating activities, lack of material and financial support and excessive involvement in domestic work stand out. Other in-school and out-of-school reasons were also identified although they were not as strong as the above mentioned
