School Performance and Upbringing in Sweden and Thailand : A Comparative Study Through the Lens of Maslow's Hieararchy of Needs (English)
Abstract [sv]

I den här studien undersöktes om det finns sammanband mellan studieresultat och uppväxtvillkor i två länder med olika kulturer. Uppväxtvillkoren representerades av Maslows behovstrappa som genom fem olika kategorier förklarar mänskliga behov. Hur eleverna som deltog svarade på frågor konstruerade utifrån Maslows teori gav en indikator på hur deras uppväxt varit. För att få reda på deras betyg frågades eleverna om deras tidigare studieresultat i tre olika ämnen, engelska, matte och modersmål. Data samlades in genom ett frågeformulär med 15 frågor baserat på Maslows trappsteg. Denna studie undersökte likheter och skillnader mellan dessa länder för att se om Maslows teori överensstämmer med verkligheten oavsett vilken grupp som undersöks och därigenom kunna se om det finns något länderna kan göra för att förbättra sina resultat. Resultatet visade att det finns skillnader i både uppväxtvillkor och resultat i skolan. Maslows teoriförklarar detta till en viss nivå, men enbart i Thailand. Det är någon okänd faktor som denna studie inte fångade upp som verkar påverka svenska studenters betyg

Abstract [en]

This study examined if there are any correlation between school performance and upbringing in two countries with different cultures. The upbringing was represented by Maslow's hierarchy of needs that through five categories explains the human needs. The way students who participaded responded on questions based on Maslow's theory gave an indication on how their upbringing was. To know the students grades they were asked about their past school preformance in three subjects english, math and their native language. Data was collected with a questionnarie with 15 questions based on Maslow's steps on the hiarchy of needs. This study wanted to examine similarites and differences between these two countries to see if Maslow's theory correspond to reality regardless of what gruop that is examined and therefore be able to ascertain if there is something the countries can do to raise their students preformance. The results showed that there where differances in both upbringing and school performance. Maslow's theory explains this to adegree, but that was only the case in Thailand, it is some unknown variable that this study did not catch that seems to affect swedish students grades
