School tendency is the key to a successful life in today's society. It increases your chances, not only for a career and future higher education, but also for a happier life. School is the most important place to learn how to cooperate, interact socially and get a healthy social network. This is a system thousands of Swedish children gets into every year because of the school duty law that all children above the age of seven must attend school, if they don't have approved absence by the principal or the child is ill. There are many reasons that makes it difficult for children attending school even though it is mandatory. The research to identify these reasons is ongoing and Malin Gren Landell has done a great work to start naming different kinds of absences from various factors to identify individual interventions for children. But with all of this new knowledge about why children are not attending school, it is interesting to analyze why there are so many children that almost daily attends school and goes through the system with no problem.
