Abstract [en]

ABSTRACT Teachers in Swedish schools must balance the values imposed by law while simultaneously attempting to respect freedom of religion for their pupils. This study aimed to empirically investigate how teachers handle pupils who are Jehovah’s Witnesses, a minority religion. Eleven, adult ex-members were asked to reflect on their experiences during school years (13–16 years) in addition to interviews with two teachers, one school psychologist and one school counsellor. The study found that teachers often do not know how to handle situations with children belonging to minority religions. The article concludes by discussing practical implications of the study.
