Through qualitative interviews with six teachers at a school an understanding of teachers´ conceptions of, and conditions for their work on pupil democracy and student participation are sought.

Formulation of questions were as follow:

  • What does pupil democracy and pupil influence mean for selected teachers?
  • How do selected teachers´ work with pupil democracy and pupil influence?
  • What opportunities and complicatedness’s do selected teachers see with this work?

Through this the selected teachers views on children and their thoughts on their role as a leader also are investigated.

According to the curriculum the Swedish school should aim to transmit primary democratic values and pursue the education through democratic work models.
