Abstract [en]

Teachers in Swedish schools are to balance the values implemented by the law and at the same time try to respect the freedom of religion for the pupils. Aim of the study was to empirically investigate how teachers deal with pupils being Jehovah's Witnesses, a minority religion. Interviews with 11 informants who was members of Jehovah's Witnesses during the time in school (age 13 - 16) was conducted as well as interviews with two teachers as well as one school-psychologist and one school-counsellor. The study found that teachers often are lost in situation with children belonging to minority religion. Implications for practice are given.
