The case concerns a high school student with a disability who, since the start of school in August 2017, has had an absence of between 45 and 100 per cent. The school considered not having investigated the reasons for the student's high absenteeism, according to the schools Inspectorate.

the Psychologist Malin Gren Landell, has led a government investigation into whether skolfrånvaro and has had several assignments for the social services and the schools Inspectorate. She believes that it is problematic that there does not exist a comprehensive picture of how many students who don't go to school. But also how the municipalities handle the problem – which the psychologist describes as large and growing.

Mary Caryll, head of utbildningssektionen at the Swedish association of local authorities and regions (SALAR) says that the preventive work against skolfrånvaro is central. At the same time, the principals provide support to break the long-term skolfrånvaro.

"We have seen that the interaction between the school, social services and health care is a key to success," she says.

Landell considers the SALAR, it is important to collect national statistics from the principals, both for valid as invalid absence.

" such A mandate from the government to the Swedish national agency for Education would be able to support principals in the work to prevent skolfrånvaro and also provide a basis for research. The most important thing is so clear what is done in each school and within each municipality, " says Mary Caryll.

Compulsory schooling is a shared responsibility between principals and guardians. According to the education act can guardians be submitted with a penalty if the children do not comply with their compulsory school attendance.
