Abstract [en]

The overall purpose of the study was to get a deeper understanding of the process of transition from preschool to compulsory school. According to the purpose the study three issues are the following:

1. How organized the reception to the compulsory school?

2. The motives are to host the compulsory school?

3. What consequences may mean the individual, group and organizational level?

The background of the study highlights different factors that influence the transition between pre-school and compulsory school. Also included is a review of research on studies related to students experiences of being in compulsory school and wc alternative solutions which occurred out in the operations, which are relevant for the study. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight managers /principals and special educators. The result is divided into four themes. The result in part one includes enrollment processes for compulsory school. Part two describes the reasons for the receipt of compulsory school. The third part shows the impact on the individual group and organizational level. The fourth section deals with children and carers influence and participation. The discussion raised that since the new Education Act (Lgr 11) it is clear who belongs compulsory school and who do not. It requires a diversity of actors that work together to facilitate the transition process for children/ students.
