Lisa Magnusson: To threaten skolkarnas parents will never lead to anything good

With the children, it is always a difficult balancing act. They have their own will, on the one hand, and the parents have control on the other. At the same time, society has a responsibility to all, regardless of background, have equal conditions in the school. In practice, this is difficult of course. This applies not least to the so-called hemmasittarna, as the daily News previously noted.

have taken up to DN show that every twentieth student in Stockholm was absent more than 20 percent of the time in January and February. In total 3 556 children – which is an increase of a thousand students in just one year.

the Figures also include the valid absences, such as illness. But very obviously is something wrong when more than every fifth student misses so many classes that it is equivalent to a whole day of the week, as it is in, for example, Rinkebyskolan. And many are gone even more than that. The number of children who are absent more than half of the time in the same period increased by 26 per cent in Stockholm, to 395 pieces.

and begin to grope for phrases on the action. The only question is which such action should consist. Some municipalities have begun to threaten the parents with vitesförläggande, shows the DN's survey. It is hard to think of a single situation where it leads to something good.

For almost all parents want their children well. Almost all parents wish the children well in life. In almost all families, it is therefore a tragedy when a child is not doing well at school. And these unfortunate families are not unhappy in their own way, even if it feels so, so it's usually by accident: it consists largely of the conviction that one is alone.

going to school is an already widespread problem that is affecting more and more. To then introduce a financial whip is to say that the error is that the individual parents ignore their children, to achieve, but their own wallets they care least about?

It's an insult disguised as tough love, and it may just create even more hostility Between the school and parents, between parents and children, between children and school.

In many places taken now money even to the most basic. Conveniently enough, this coincides with the trend to put their trust in new technologies and the student's own ability.

understand that the reason for scrutinizing. In Skolinspektionens elevenkäter it is clear that the security and studieron decreases. And if you look at the schools that tops the frånvarolistan in Stockholm, sweden has twice as many pupils as the national average indicated that there are other students or staff that they are afraid of. It does not mean that it is the same children who then end up going to school. But it will at least be an overlap.

A large part of the problems is also a matter of overall policy decision. In many places taken now money even to the most basic. Conveniently enough, this coincides with the trend to put their trust in new technologies and the student's own ability. Which fits in a single group: the high-performance of children from financially strong families, a variety that survives in all school environments.

as best they can. But some manage it just won't. Some have neuropsychiatric problems that prevents traditional schooling. Others are troublemakers looking for kicks and status, and that it required considerable resources and perseverance to catch up. And there's the actual hemmasittarna, which, without exception, feel bad. People are social creatures; isolate themselves in the home and in the obscurity of the sick and injured.

Almost all of these children's parents have most likely already tried everything and more to get the school work for the child. That on top of all threaten these families with financial ruin is just... too much.

it is difficult to create a school that takes care of all the students and make them feel happy. The minimum one can ask for is a humble insight on the school's imperfection, and transparency: There must be many paths out, and back, for those who are not capable of the rapid, noisy, and often precarious budgetmotorvägen. In fact, it is probably this that is the school's primary task. Not equal conditions, but equal conditions.
