Abstract [en]

Three different factors are thought to be involved in the increased segregation in Stockholm: the living segregation, scientific and political dissonances and the social economical factor. Many segregated areas have many inhabitants with foreign background. Schools in these areas have a higher number of students with lower grades compared to other schools with higher number of students that are ethnical Swedes. Jordbromalmsskolan is a school in Haninge kommun that is one of the seven schools in Stockholms suburbs where students graduate with the lowest grades. The school is suffering from a very bad reputation because of many problems like fights between students and lack of resources like purchase stop. The aim with this report is to find out what students believe is difficult with the schoolwork and thereby find the causes for why there is such a high number of student with low grades in Jordbro compared to other areas in Stockholm. Student’s thoughts and outlooks about Jordbromalmsskolans bad reputation will also be a focus through interviews with eight students, four student from class 8C and fours students from class 9C.

Results from the examinations showed that many students found it difficult to concentrate during class-time. Many students also found that they had lack in knowledge in the Swedish language which affected difficulties in reading and understanding of schoolbooks. Too many homework and tests is another factor that students think complicate there schoolwork.

Social studies and Science are the two subjects that majority of the students thought were the most difficult ones because of the difficult language and terms used in the literature. When it came to Jordbromalmsskolans bad reputation all the students disagree. No student that was interviewed wanted to change school and majority of the student’s get on well with their friends and teachers. The students believe that the schools bad reputation mostly depend on that the school has a high number of students with foreign backgrounds which has contributed to that many students finish school with low grades, one factor to this problem is believed to be the lacking knowledge in insecurity of the Swedish language.
