The great school death : Regarding closures and reorganizations of schools in the municipalities of Stenbrohult, Göteryd and Virestad in 1954-1970 (English)
Abstract [en]

This is a historical study of the political process connected to closures and reorganizations of schools in the rural municipalities Stenbrohult, Göteryd and Virestad in Sweden during the years 1954-1970.The main source material used in the study are protocols from meetings with the city councils and the local education committees. Articles from the newspaper Smålänningen are used as a complement to the protocols. The study shows that all three of the municipalities went through big changes when it comes to education and schools during the period. The number of schools were reduced from 20 in 1954 to 7 in 1970. The main reasons that the schools were reorganized was that old school buildings were in bad condition, the number of students in rural areas were diminishing and small schools with only a few students were too expensive. Urbanization and centralization seem to have been important factors that contributed to the closing of many schools.
