    Targets. The beginning of the school is an exciting matter significant to the child and family. In the diabetic child's family the tension will be easily increased by the concern about the child's diabetes care during the school day because the diabetes sets its own challenges to the school attendance. It has been discussed whose responsibility it is to take care diabetic pupils during school day. According to the legislation, the pupil has a right to the safe and equal learning environment and the organizer of the teaching has a responsibility in the arranging of it. In this study an attempt was made to clarify how the objectives appointed by the law rule from the safe and equal school attendance come true in practice on the basis of the diabetic children's parents experiences. Furthermore, an attempt was made to clear the diabetic children's readiness and need for the support in the self-care of the diabetes and what kind of cooperation ways there are need for the support in the self-care of the diabetes and what kind of cooperation ways there are between a home and the school in use in the arranging of the diabetes pupil's school day. Methods. The research material consisted of the answer of the 40 elementary school aged diabetic pupil parent. The material for the thesis was gathered by using an internet questionnaire, which were half structured. The open questions were used in such questions in which one wanted to get the interviewees' own vote belonging. Content analysis was used as an analysis method of the material. Results and conclusions. The results indicate that because there are no common guidelines, children are being treated unequally and their right to study in a safe and equal learning environment does not come true by everybody. All the diabetic pupils will not get care of the illness and the support needed during the school day. The success of the cooperation and ways of action are dependent on the staff and their will. To support the diabetic pupil's self-care and to reach good care balance, basic knowledge of diabetes needs to be increased among persons working with children at schools. The clear national manuals and responsibility definition are also needed to support arranging diabetic children's school attendance.
