In this project we will study FGU (preparative initial training) and how the young people at this institution are experiencing stigmatization within the contemporary society they live in.
The group of young people who don’t go the straight way through the educational system are members of “the residual group”. We are very critical towards this definition of the group, and how it is a replicating stigma of these people to be a member of this group. Our concerns revolve around the FGU being able to include all these different people, and give them the best options to accomplish an education or find work in an achievement-oriented society.
We have visited a specific FGU and made observations in their everyday life and interviewed two students. We found that the two students had very different life histories and reasons to be there.
The theory of science positions we are using in this project are critical theory and symbolic interactionism, and our main theories are Hartmut Rosa’s perspective on the accelerating society and Erving Goffman’s views on stigmatizing.
Based on our research we found that it is a very complex group of people put together at FGU. The two students we interviewed had very different experiences with the Danish educational system and therefore different views on being a student at FGU. The students were experiencing stigma in correlation to their educational, cultural and social background.
