Absentee school students lose benefits

Published onsdag 10 juli 2013 kl 15.49
Dire consequences for skipping class.

The number of upper secondary students who get their financial study aid from the state withdrawn as a result of unauthorised absence from school continues to increase.

New figures from Swedish Central Study Aid Board (CSN) show that 21,422 upper secondary students lost their study benefits in 2012. That constitutes 6.2 percent of all high school students in Sweden, and is a new record.

The reason, according to CSN, is new routines for handling unauthorised absenteeism, that is, skipping class. The number of students losing benefits have increased since 2008.
