«Jeg har aldri spurt om å kunne slutte selv». En kvalitativ studie av en gruppe jenters vei mot frafall i videregående skole
In this article we explore the school history of girls who are dropping out from upper secondary school, recorded with mental problems. The study has a qualitative, exploratory design with an inductive approach. Interviews were conducted with life-line method, with some supplemental questions. Most of the girls experience weak relations to both school-peers and teachers in primary school. Some of them are bullied and describe a school without capability to deal with the problems and work for an including school environment. When they reach upper secondary school they have a high absence rate and most of them are requested to terminate school, partly due to the risk of losing part of their statutory right to upper education. The findings are discussed in resilience- and bio-ecological perspectives.
