Democracy education in schools : A comparative study between the Swedish and South African school (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to highlight how Swedish primary school teachers teach of and about democracy and based on this then compare with how the primary school teachers in South Africa teaches of and about democracy. This comparison will then highlight what can be developed in the teaching of and about democracy in Swedish schools. The method used in this study is mind maps because it gives a greater depth in the way teachers look at teaching democracy. The result of this comparison is that South Africa's history pervades the entire democracy education in school but both Sweden and South Africa use methods as dialogue and discussion in teaching of and about democracy. Furthermore, the community, curriculum, teacher and cooperation with other teachers also have an influence on how democracy's teaching looks like in schools. The result shows that encounters with other people and resources have an impact on teaching democracy. Swedish schools democracy education would develop if the education had more encounters with other people from other contexts compared with South Africa which is great need for more resources to create a diverse education in schools.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att belysa hur svenska grundskolelärare undervisar i och om demokrati och utifrån detta jämföra med grundskolelärare i Sydafrika undervisar i och om demokrati. Denna jämförelse skall sedan belysa vad som kan utvecklas i demokratiundervisningen i svensk skola. Metoden som har använts till denna studie är föreställningskartor eftersom detta ger ett större djup i hur lärarna ser på demokratiundervisning i skolan. Resultatet av denna jämförelse är att Sydafrikas historia genomsyrar hela demokratiundervisningen i skolan men både Sverige och Sydafrika bygger sin undervisning i och om demokrati utifrån samtal och diskussioner. Vidare har samhället, läroplanen, läraren och även lärarkollegialt samarbete en påverkan på hur demokratiundervisningen ter sig i skolan. Resultatet visar också att möten och resurser har en påverkan på undervisningen i och om demokrati. I Sverige behövs det ännu mer möten med andra människor från andra kontexter jämfört med Sydafrika som uppvisar ett stort behov av mer resurser för att skapa en varierande undervisning i skolan.
