”Inte bara en kostnadsfråga” - ledningsgruppers tal om ”barn i behov”

”Children in need - not just a matter of cost” - Talk and interaction in Management Teams (English)
Abstract [en]

In this study, I describe and analyze everyday talk about “special needs children” in the schools as the subject of conditioned negotiations in management meetings at the administrative level. The focus of the analysis is on the talk and interaction in the negotiation rounds that take place among meeting participants – particularly school superintendents and principals – in a continual negotiation from discovery of the problem until the administrative decision.

My theoretical premise is based on discourse analysis, meaning that talk and text are seen as part of the social practice in which language is used to carry out or accomplish something. In the everyday talk they produce, people create order, meaning, and context in their reality. People jointly construct the world through everyday conversation, which also has an impact on how the world can be understood by individuals.

The analytical point of departure is thus talk as action and interaction. I have applied a qualitative approach with tools from discourse analysis. I report and analyze conversation excerpts to show how the negotiation rounds ensue and how meeting participants process, negotiate, and renegotiate what they are talking about, what should be done about the matter at hand, and the import of the action. Order, meaning, and context are created in the meeting participants’ reality in the talk they produce and in the negotiation rounds. The study is a substudy of a research project “School management and administration as discourse and discursive practice – the leading words” (Sundgren, 2001), which is aimed at exploring the meaning of language as a tool for school management and administration in the political and administrative arenas.
