Students play truant for school trip

 Many graduates of high school in Brinell Nässjö play truant from school this week and instead go on holiday in the sun.

 School management wears his hair in despair and even though it has banned the trip because it takes place during school hours is high absenteeism. Resan har blivit en tradition veckan före avslutningen, uppger lokala medier. The trip has become a tradition, the week before closing, according to local media.

About half of the school’s 430 students have chosen to go.

“We have tried to fix this and this year we put the baccalaureate a week earlier so that they could go after graduation, but it has not helped.”

Jan Andersson, the head secondary to SVT’s New University says.
Truancy is reported as invalid in the absence leaving certificate, but otherwise may not do as much school.
