The purpose of this study is to investigate the structure of stressors and social support on the student's tendency not to attendend school. We conducted a survey among 444 students of colleges and special training schools about the stressors and the social support they had when in high school. The tendency school non-attendence was classfied into three groups: A: The absence of motivation to attend school, B: Incomplete attendance of school, C: Non-attendance of school.<br>The major findings were as follows: (1) The three groups suffered from heavy stress. (2) Those in groups A and C felt that they got less social support than the control group. (3) A model we made of the grounds for the tendency towards school non-attendence indicated that 1. “Companionship and group-behavior stress” and “teacher-related stress” directly effected the tendency towards school non attendence; 2. “Parent-related stress” and “study-related stress” indirectly effected the tendency towards school non-attendence; and 3. Social support had both a direct and indirect buffering effect for the tendency towards school non-attendence.
