Voices of Somali children in a Swedish school
Luleå University of Technology, Department of Arts, Communication and Education, Education, Language, and Teaching.

Abstract [en]

The focus of this paper is the way in which refugee children experience the Swedish school in which they are now enrolled. The children in this study are all aged between nine and twelve years old and are recent refugees from Somalia. They now live in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, and all attend the same school - a Muslim school. In an attempt to illuminate the Somalia children's experiences, drawings combined with oral comments have been used. There are significant differences between the past educational experiences, if any, of these children and the school and wider society of which they are now part. An understanding of both previous experiences and expectations and present understandings is essential if the needs of this vulnerable group of children are to be adequately met. Data collected in this study offers a window of understanding into the ways in which these children experience school.
