Abstract [en]

A crisis is something that can happen to all of us in an unexpected situation, and the school should be prepared in a way that is the best way to handle a situation with a wide foundation through a crisis plan. On a well-defined way, you should have a developed and relevant emergency plan. Defining the word crisis can be difficult, it is an individual interpretation, and to get found out what the word stands for and it have to be discussed. The two selected schools that I have chosen to interview have discussed the understanding of the word crisis in able to get what the word means for them. The two selected schools have come to the conclusion that a crisis is something that creates disturbances for people or a person concerned to the everyday way of living. The interview shows what the school does in practice in order to help the student to a better path through life, an option is to read much fiction or stories for the students to understand and relate to that there are other children who have the same or almost same problems in everyday life. How to manage a crisis is very relevant in today's society for the school to function in in best way, therefore, the purpose of this essay are to study the two selected schools' emergency plans and through an interview getting even more understanding how to work with a crisis plan and why crisis plan is important. The questions are:

  • Which obligations have schools when it comes to crisis plans?
  • How well prepared crisis plans have the two selected schools?
  • How do teachers educate and capacitate in crisis management?

One conclusion that my essay shows, is that training in crisis management and how much skill you need to create a well-developed crisis plan are very important parts. A crisis plan has to be constantly updated because it is necessary to constantly develop new ways of thinking and also to create an understanding of crisis management in schools.
