The purpose of current study was to investigate Socio-Economic Factors Influencing Students Drop Out At primary level. The data are taken from working folks grammar schools of District Haripur. Keeping in view the importance of primary education for national and human resource development, Pakistan in all its educational policies and plans has laid great emphasis upon the promotion and universalization of primary education. However it has partial success in achieving this goal till today. It was found that family affairs, conflict between mother and father, inferiority complex due to social reasons, bad company of the students in the society, poverty of parents and the thinking part of students are the major reasons contributing to student’s dropout. In addition to these, the conservativeness of the society, lack of comparable rights to students, low rate of literacy, unequal partition of knowledge, ecofinancial desires of family and lack of job opportunities also contribute to student’s dropout. These conclusions are aligned with past studies on similar subject such as Ghafoor and Baloch (1990) and Joubish & Khurram (2011)
