Knowledge management  is the name of a concept in which an enterprise consciously and comprehensively gathers, organizes, shares, and analyzes its knowledge in terms of resources, documents, and  people skills. Knowledge management involves data mining and some method of operation to push information to users. A knowledge management plan involves a survey of corporate goals and a close examination of the tools, both traditional and technical that is required for addressing the needs of the company. The challenge of selecting a knowledge management system is to purchase or build software that fits the context of the overall plan and encourages employees to use the system and share information. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of knowledge management of secondary school dropouts in achieving vision 2030.The data obtained was presented using tables and graphs. Descriptive statistics were used, including percentages, ratios and frequencies. Data was presented using tables and graphs. University admission did not appear to be directly influenced by factors affecting completion and drop out. The trend of university admission therefore needs to be investigated further during future research. It can also be concluded from research undertaken that majority of new admissions is as a result of students dropping from other schools (represented by 21%), followed by low fees requirement of day secondary schools and proximity to schools. The study recommends that there is need for stakeholders in the educational sector to develop strong guidelines for collecting and coding data to ensure the data are accurate as possible and an incentive be created for schools to find out what happens to their students.
