Children Are People (CAP) is a pedagogical method to make children’s reality more comprehensible, possible to handle and meaningful. At the Rosengard School in Malmo a method has been created to serve the Swedish school environment and to fit the needs of children, 9-11 years old, who come from families often characterized as of war and escape. The three year project showed good results and has been made permanent. Pupils have created their ability to interpret and understand their surroundings, to handle conflicts, to be able to make good life choices, and to get future optimism. The evaluation contents systematic observations and statements, that all describe individual development and a better working climate at the school.
