For the purpose of this study, the research approach mainly used was qualitative supplemented with quantitative data. The word qualitative implies an emphasis on the qualities of entities and on processes and meanings that are not experimentally examined or measured (if measured at all) in terms of quantity, amount, intensity, or frequency (Denzin & Lincoln, 2008). Qualitative approach use methods of data collection in which the data to be obtained are not ordinarily expressed in numerical terms. This does not mean that numerical figures are never used, but that description is emphasized. A design is used to structure the research to show how all of the major parts of research project such as the samples of groups’ measures, treatments or programs, to try to address the central research questions. In this study, factors that contributing to female students dropout rates included school facilities and socio- economic issues such as parent occupation, economic ability and how parents value education.
