Cultural characteristic and college dropout
Cultural characteristics of students play an essential role in education. In college, the independent model of self is widely prevalent, whereas first-generation college students practice the interdependent model of self. The present paper argues that first-generation college students are more prone to drop out because of the cultural difference they experience in education. So, dropout is looking through the lenses of cultural perspectives. The paper divided into three sections. The first section focuses on cultural characteristics; the second section focuses on student dropout and finally showed how it relates. Thus, the paper attempted to highlight the importance of maintaining cultural diversity to prevent dropout in higher education.
