Dropping- out of school is not the Answer!

By Thabisile Ncube

Education is the key to success, so I was told, without education I will be doomed.

Learners drop out of school for various reasons; some because they are not coping with the academic requirements or have failed a Grade or two a number of times, and have lost confidence.

Some because they have to look for jobs as they are teenage parents and have to make ends meet for their children. The teasing and being laughed at by your schoolmates also does not help!
Without a decent education, it also becomes very difficult to get a good paying job.

My feelings on the matter are that dropping out is not the answer to your problems. Never stop following your dreams because of problems and mistakes you might have made, mistakes are there for us to learn from!

Follow your dreams and never give up on life. There will be solutions in the end.
