Problematic School Absenteeism – Improving Systems and Tools
The Nordic Erasmus+ project, invites attendees to a conference reflecting on why school absenteeism is problematic.
23rd of May 2022
To improve systems and tools we need to share information on how it is worked on at different levels, what is reported or experienced as effective to solve or reduce the problem, how we can learn from each other, where we are now, and where are we going. The aim of the conference is to raise awareness on school absenteeism from different perspectives, and to promote prevention and hope for the future.
The Nordic Erasmus+ project on, Problematic School Absenteeism – Improving Systems and Tools, provides in this report an overview of existing definitions and theories about school absenteeism.
It also attempts to determine definitions and frames of understanding overlooked in the literature/research. The outcome is to arrive at common denominators and frames of understanding within and across the Nordic countries.
The objective of this anthology is to convey knowledge regarding inclusive communities in kindergartens and schools. Creating inclusive communities is one of the fundamental principles in our education system. Diverse children and young people should be able to learn and develop in a community of practice, and good adaptation is a prerequisite for the accomplishment thereof.
