Policy and participant perspectives on the drop-out problem in secondary education

    Research output: Contribution to conference without publisher/journalPaper without publisher/journalResearch

    Abstract

    In this paper we compare the way the drop-out problem in secondary education is constructed in Danish official and public policy discourse with the way it is experiences and interpreted by young people trying to get an education. As regards the student's perspective we will use interviews with students in production schools. This is an interim form of schooling for young people who have for some reason not entered secondary education directly but are still trying to find their way into (most often) vocational education.
