    En este estudio se analiza el comportamiento de la deserción escolar en la Institución Educativa Benkos Biohó, del corregimiento de Palenque, en el 2007. Además, se analiza la situación de la deserción escolar del municipio de Mahates y del departamento de Bolívar. Se indaga, mediante técnicas cualitativas, en los distintos factores asociados a la deserción en la Institución Educativa Benkos Biohó. Para la identificación de los factores asociados a la deserción en el caso estudiado se utilizó un taller de grupo focal, en el que participaron docentes, estudiantes y directivos de la institución, el cual permitó recoger las percepciones de la comunidad académica sobre el problema en estudio. En el departamento de Bolívar, de acuerdo con los resultados obtenidos, se observa una asociación entre calidad de la educación, deserción y pobreza medida por nbi. En el caso de Benkos Biohó, la categorización de las percepciones expresadas por la comunidad educativa señalan que la deserción escolar en la institución es causada por factores psicológicos (desmotivación), sociológicos (integración a la escuela), económicos (trabajo infantil) y organizacionales (carencia de recursos de apoyo).
