About 25,000 young people live “outside society”

About 25,000 young people live “outside society” | Finland | Scoop.it
About 25,000 young people with only a comprehensive school education are out of reach of society. The number is greater than that of young people who are classified as unemployed. If the unskilled jobless are included, the figure reaches 40,000.
Those who have fallen on the wayside do not work or study, but they have also not registered as unemployed. They are not on pension, in institutions, or in the Defence Forces. Society does not actually know where they are and what they live on.
Included in the group are only those who have not continued their education beyond comprehensive school. Also excluded are those who are taking care of a child of their own. Those who have completed upper secondary school, but are hanging out somewhere in the world are also excluded.
