COMPREHENSION: Today, although most students in our country complete school, a large number still drop out for

many reasons. Most students do so because of family problems. Girls, especially, want to get married and start a family. Some parents are not interested in education and do not support their children in studying. Social problems are also a contributing factor. Education is compulsory but some people do not take it seriously. Furthermore, jobs are available even if students do not have a good education. Another reason is work pressure. Some families are poor and need their children to work in order to increase the income. All these problems will create young people who do not have any skills and who will not be able to improve their lives for the country. 1-Complete this sentence in your own words: a- Family problems 2-These sentences are false.
