Abstract [en]

The world wars in the 20th century did not only influence the Swedish society, but also the

Swedish school system and its reforms. The focus was now to foster the pupils to become

democratic citizens, that are sympathetic, tolerant and exhibit solidarity with their fellow

human beings. The aim of this qualitative text analysis and systematic literature study is to

analyze and compile how norms and values took their form in three different Swedish school

reforms, from a historic and contemporary perspective. With peer-reviewed scientifical

studies, we gain an understanding of challenges and solutions, in the application of these

norms and values in the daily school activities. The study is a compilation of reviewed

encyclopedias, literature and laws.

Findings show that norms and values in the Swedish school reforms have changed drastically,

especifically between 1955 and 2011. The current norms and values came to pass in 1994 and

remains unchanged until now. These reforms are emphasized in a distinct and nuanced

chapter. There appears to be a general lack of training and qualification in this field. This lack

of competence among teachers makes it harder for them to handle situations where the norms

and values are being challenged. Teachers face difficulty in using the right meta-language in

transferring the new norms and values to the pupils. Therefore, it is of paramount importance

that educators are adequately trained in this field, to be able to tackle myriads of valuechallenging

situations and to have a more authentic open classroom where all pupils' voices

are heard, thereby, promoting democracy and human rights within Swedish educational

institutions.
