Abstract [en]

The aim with this study is to increase our knowledge about the relation between structures of governance and local initiatives by professionals. Based on theory of professional agency, staff from different levels in an organization offering preschool were asked about follow up systems and possibility of professional agency. The result showed that the national curricula for preschool and the Education Act created a situation where the curriculum was perceived as a foundation for equally good “educare”, but at the same time every “level” created a variety of additional follow-up activities. The conclusion is that a national governance by objectives and results creates a situation where local authorities and organizers, as well as professionals, to a certain extent, can re-create follow up systems and activities which suits their administrative and most of all, pedagogic needs. The “cost” for this local and professional agency is that the additional several follow up systems/activities increases the administrative burden for the staff.
