In Malmo 20 percent of pupils do not pass compulsory education. In their final year in Elementary school, they do not pass the subjects Swedish, Maths or English. Hence, they cannot go on to ordinary programs in secondary education. In 2008 we have collected information about life-situations /in- and outside school/ from those who did not pass last year in Malmö. The aim was to contribute with knowledge about on how school is involved in the process of producing weak-achievers and dropouts. And to understand needs of the pupils in school, according to them. A web-questionnaire was given to pupils within Individual Programs (n-296) and deep-interviews were held with 62 pupils, parents, teachers. Data was analyzed on structural and individual level.
