The dataset consists of self-administered written texts in which the participants discuss possible reasons for not pursuing classroom teacher training. The participants are first-year classroom teacher students, and the texts were collected in lectures for first-year students at two different universities.

The writing guidelines directed participants to write about whether they had considered the option of not applying for classroom teacher training. Participants were also asked what reasons they might have had for not applying and why these reasons might have dissuaded them from applying.

Background information included the participant's gender. The data were organised into an easy to use HTML version at FSD.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
