Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka hur fem rektorer beskrev sina erfarenheter av att leda skolsocialt arbete i grundskolan. Detta är viktigt att studera då elevers skolproblematik har ökat både pedagogiskt och socialt. Med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer med rektorer från både kommunala och fristående skolor undersöktes vilken betydelse rektorers erfarenheter hade för hur de såg på det skolsociala arbetet. Studien omfattade även hur rektorer beskrev sin komplexa yrkesroll och om rektorerna hade upplevt någon förändring inom det skolsociala arbetet över tid. I litteraturen som låg till grund för denna uppsats framställdes det skolsociala arbetet som komplext och tidskrävande. Studiens huvudresultat och slutsats är att skolsocialt arbete idag omfattar en större del socialt arbete än tidigare, vilket tar tid och ekonomiska resurser från det pedagogiska arbetet. Vi frågar oss om detta kan vara en bidragande orsak till att kunskapsresultaten bland svenska elever har minskat.

Abstract [en]

Title: The future starts in school – Principals’ experience of managing school social work in elementary schools.The aim of this essay was to examine how five principals described their experiences of managing the school social work in elementary schools. This is important to study since student educational and social failure in school has increased. Using qualitative interviews with principals from both municipal and privately owned schools we examined how the principals’ experiences influenced the school social work. The study included how the principals described their complex professional role and if the principals had experienced any changes in the school social work over time. In the literature on which this essay was based on, school social work was described as complex and time consuming. The essay’s conclusion is that school social work today includes a lot of social work, which takes time and financial resources from the educational process. We question if this can be a contributing reason to the decrease in knowledge results among Swedish students.
