The aim of this studys is to investigate students’ opinion about their handwriting, how motivation can influence handwriting and how teachers work with handwrithing. Through intevjues with 25 sixgraders and two of their teachers, this study tends to proclame a picture of the handwriting education in a Swedish school. The results of this study shows that the students’ attitude towards handwriting and choice of writingtool has some connection to the motivation but is not restricted to it. The interviewed teachers do not work frequent with their students’ handwriting because there is no time and teachers consider the handwritingskill depending on their students’ attitude and volition.
