Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine the situation of the school for boys 15-21 years of age lacking compulsory school attendance and is being located at five residential care units from the pedagogues’ point of view. The study was conducted by interviewing four pedagogical leaders and two teachers. The results demonstrate that the boys can choose the subjects they study as well as the amount of time they spend on studying each week. The teachers include non-learning activities during their lessons. Some of the pedagogues’ teach at a ninth grade level regardless of the boys' actual level. The boys have access to books. The pedagogues explained that they have a good relationship with the boys and that they noticed a lack of interest from the care workers regarding the boys' education. Most of the situated boys lack complete grades from the ninth grade when they leave the residential care unit. The major findings of this study are that the residential care units don’t offer education in all subjects in ninth grade. The pedagogues’ describe that they are afraid of insulting and scare the boys away from the school which affects the education of the boys.
