|Abstract:||The major objective of this study was to make an investigation into the current enrollment of female students in Arsi Zone High Schools, to identify the major causes i.e. school related factors (distance, teachers attitudes, sexual harassment, lack of guidance and counseling and school facilities) and to pinpoint the major areas of intervention by the school personnel, Zonal education bureau, regional policy makers and educational planners. To achieve this objective, a descriptive survey method was used. Data from documents were secured from the annual abstracts of the MOE, OEB, Arsi Zone Educational Bureau and the high schools included in the study. Moreover, questionnaires, (structured and unstructured) were administered to 379 female students, 49 teachers and 13 school personnel. Structured and unstructured interviews were also presented to school personnel. Enrollment, promotion, repetition and dropout rates and percentage of female enrollment were calculated to examine the participation of female students in Arsi Zone High schools when compared with males in the region for the year 1987 to 1991 E.C. Besides this, percentages of Chi-square and Z-score were used to analyze the data obtained from questionnaires. The study findings indicated that school-related factors such as location (distance to school), teachers attitudes sexual harassment, lack of guidance and counseling, pregnancy and inadequate school facilities in high schools were identified as a problem for low rate enrollment of female students in Arsi Zone high schools.|
