Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In the previous curriculum for the preschool Lpfö 98, the educational responsibility was documented belonging to all the team members. On the 1st of July 2011 a new curriculum was introduced to the preschool, Lpfö 98/10, where it is documented that the educational responsibility now belongs to the preschool teachers. According to curriculum experts at the Swedish school board this educational responsibility is not new, just a clarification of the preschool teacher’s educational responsibility.
This study is a qualitative study and the purpose was to interview the preschool teachers about their thoughts concerning their educational responsibility. The purpose was also to examine if their educational responsibility has affected their role in the team at the preschool and if they believe that this has any significance for their profession.
My result of the study shows that the educational responsibility of the preschool teachers now has been clarified and that they should take a leading role in the team towards the goals that are set for the preschool. This leading role that the preschool teachers now must take has been compared to a leadership which in my study has been exercised in many different perspectives. In my study it has also emerged that the clarification of the educational responsibility gives hope to the preschool teachers of a higher status for the preschool teacher profession.
