Lloyd, Cynthia B.; Mensch, Barbara S.; Clark, Wesley H.
Comparative Education Review, v44 n2 p113-47 May 2000
Studies of 36 rural elementary schools in Kenya and interviews with 774 adolescents in the schools' attendance areas found that dropping out was significantly related to individual and family variables, with many stronger effects for girls than boys, and that girls' remaining in school was discouraged by nonsupportive classroom environments, unequal treatment of boys and girls, and harassment.
