En skola för alla?: en essä om hur vi förhåller oss gentemot barn som saknar de förutsättningar som den svenska skolan förväntar sig
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In my essay the dilemmas originate from what I have experienced. I have observed myself and some of my colleagues, how we meet children who are lacking the qualifications which school and most pedagogues expect them to have. Focus, in my written experiences, is on children who live in poverty, but how we meet and act toward them is often quite the same independent of what qualifications they are lacking. With the support from literature and theories I reflect and analyse the dilemmas. Through essaywriting I investigate my practical knowledge and I examine how we as pedagogues handle the complex situations encounter when in school and how it is possible to understand why we act the way we do.
I think that the knowledge which essaywriting gives me will strengthen me as a person and in my work as a teacher for after-school-center. My essaywriting will motivate me to reflect over the norms of society and their influence on children. I have often find it difficult to know how to act, but my hope is that this new knowledge can help me to understand and handle these types of situations better in the future. We must dare to stand up for the children. Even if only one person reacts to difficult situationes, it will make a difference.
