Title Some aspects of early school leaving in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland
Author(s) Cederberg, Margareta ; Hartsmar, Nanny

English abstract
The article describes early school leaving in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, using examples to show a complex representation of early school leaving and its consequences for young people´s susequent access to the labour market. We show how measures taken by governments and school authorities in the respective countries have resulted in improvements for students transition from school to work. However, we also show that an educational system per se can create problems for both individuals and groups. Early school leaving increases the risk of unemployment, and if when permenent, about two years are spent out of school unemployment between the ages 16-20 this, increases the risk of the young people being marginalised and having health and social problems later in life.
