Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study aims to analyze four gymnasium teachers’ opinion on the values within the Swedish school system today, as well as the presence of conflicting values and goals in their role as a street level bureaucrat. A comparative aspect concerning private and state regulated schools was implemented into the study in order to compare one school system to the other. This was achieved by using semi-structured interviews with the aim to register the teachers’ opinions on these matters.
The study showed that the teachers perceive a high amount of discretion within their role as a street level bureaucrat concerning the educational aspect of their work. Despite this the “Top-Down” implementation is present in the way that there are several incentives that are beneficial for the teacher to follow. Additionally the study shows that there are several goal conflicts within the school system today that are most visible within the state regulated schools, as well as that the teachers in the private gymnasiums enjoy a higher degree of discretion.
