Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to explore how those selected successful primary schools in reducing dropout were able to reduce the rate of the dropouts. To this end, answers to the basic questions pertaining to the possible cause of the dropouts, measures taken, roles played by respondents, and lessons learnt were sought for. The research methodology employed in this study was descriptive survey. Accordingly survey questionnaires and interview question items were prepared and pilot tested and administered to a sample of 425 subjects composed of 31 3 teachers, 21 directors, 14 supervisors, 7 Woreda education heads, 7 Woreda capacity building oflicers and 63 parent teacher association committee members. In aggregate 100 percent of the questionnaires were properly filled in and returned, and data analysis made with both descriptive and inferential statistics. T he findings of the study showed that child labour, poverty, early marriage, low value for primary education, distance of primary schools, and the Woreda cabinet's low attention to primary education were the major problems. To solve these problems, selected schools have involved NGO's, created awareness program, and had signed a letter of agreement with students' families not to let students' dropout. The teachers have gone to the extent of visiting each student's home to create awareness among the community. Parent- teacher association committee has played a great role to reach this target. The recommendations forwarded include arranging experience-sharing program within the Woreda, Zone and Regional level, which has dropout problems. The other ones are giving in service training, giving educational planning and management course for directors of the primary schools, rearranging home-to-home visits of teachers and discussion with parents.
