Determinants of Student Mobility in Primary School in Rural Malawi: "An Event History Analysis"
World Journal of Education, v7 n2 p19-30 2017
This study identifies individual, family, and school factors associated with student mobility. Specifically, for Grade 5 students, parents alive and school location were associated with transfer. For students in Grade 7, gender differences, levels of achievement, feelings about school, number of household tasks, distance to school, and parental habits of paying school fees were related to student mobility. Also, school location and mean number of grade repetitions for the institution are correlated with Grade 7 student mobility. The findings contribute to ongoing discussions about educational policy regarding transfer.
