ABSTRACT 

Education is the most crucial precondition for the overall development of a nation. There have been numerous attempts to attain the veritable goal of education by multiple educational institutions in Bangladesh. Although a large number of graduates are added to the list of highly educated individuals, most of them are detached from the main objectives of acquiring education due to their cumulative reluctance towards learning. This study aims at finding out the reasons behind students' lack of interest in learning from socio-economic and psychological perspectives and incorporating congenial suggestions to overcome this intricate circumstance. Integration of qualitative and quantitative research has been used in conducting this study in order to get a general overview. A number of factors are located responsible for students' reluctance towards learning including incongruous curriculum, deficiency of teacher's pedagogical skills, unemployment issues, adversity of accommodation, lack of financial security, mental anxiety, and so on. In order to surpass this alarming situation and to bring back students' interest in learning, they must be provided with a standardized curriculum, financial security, access to vocational studies, qualified teachers, and employment opportunities. 

Keywords: Learning, Students' reluctance, Knowledge, Academic curriculum, Motivation, and Educational Policy.
