Abstract [en]

In this essay we aimed to find how economic scarcity among children and youth presents itself in school, according to how school staff experience it. We have conducted interviews with student welfare staff to hear their experiences of this subject and how the schools try to help these pupils. We have used interpretative phenomenology as a base for our work. We have also used some of this traditions most important notions along with notions of Erving Goffman and Sara Ahmed during our processing off the material.  With help from these, we report our most interesting results. We have seen that a lack of resources exists among youth today and that everyone not has easy access to things many of us might take for granted. Also, we have seen examples of how these circumstances can be mentally perceived. In the interviews we have been given examples of how schools try to support these pupils through free activities and through advices about and contact with helping agents in society. Some quotes and information from our interviewees has inspired us to discuss how the attitude and the relation we have to the subject may influence our work with it and the results that we reach.

Abstract [sv]

Målet var i denna uppsats att se hur ekonomisk utsatthet bland barn och ungdomar yttrar sig i skolan berättat utifrån skolpersonals upplevelser.  Vi har genomfört intervjuer med elevvårdspersonal för att få höra om deras erfarenheter av detta ämne och hur skolorna arbetar för att hjälpa dessa elever.  Som bas för arbetet har vi använt oss av tolkande fenomenologi.  Några av denna traditions centrala begrepp har vi också använt tillsammans med begrepp från Erving Goffman och Sara Ahmed i vår bearbetning av materialet.  Med viss hjälp av dessa redovisar vi de mest intressanta resultaten. Vi har funnit att brist på resurser existerar hos unga i skolorna vi har undersökt och att alla inte med lätthet kan få det som många tar för givet. Vidare har vi fått höra exempel på hur sådana förhållanden kan upplevas mentalt.  Det har i intervjuerna kommit fram olika exempel på hur skolor försöker ge stöd, genom aktiviteter och kontakt med hjälpinsatser. Med utgångspunkt i intervjuerna vill vi också diskutera inställningen och förhållandet till ämnet och hur det eventuellt kan påverka arbetet och resultatet.
