Abstract

 

The purpose of the study was to ascertain the school leaders knowledge and priorities of the national goals for their school system respectively and how they declare that they and other operators within the local school system, give priority to the goals. In order to answer this question at issue, a web-based questionnaire was performed among school leaders in a fairly large municipality in Sweden.

 

My result shows that the school leaders have good knowledge of the national goals for the school system where they operate, but they experience that other actors have less knowledge of these goals. Furthermore, the school leaders declare that they give priority to the national goals to a high degree, but not more than other goals, while they experience that other operators do not prioritize the national goals to the same extent.

The other actors in this context are school staff, school heads, responsible local politicians and municipal principal organisers. Those who prioritize the national goals the least are the local politicians, according to the school leaders. The result indicates that local goals sometimes are more prioritized than the national goals, instead of using the national goals as a criterion and subordinate the local goals.

Sammanfattning

Syftet med min undersökning var att ta reda på skolledares kännedom om och prioriteringar av de statliga målen för sina respektive verksamheter och hur de uppger att de och andra aktörer prioriterar dessa mål. För att undersöka detta genomfördes en webbaserad enkätundersökning bland skolledare i en medelstor kommun i västra Sverige.

 

Mitt resultat visar att skolledarna uppger sig själva ha god kännedom om de statliga målen för sina respektive verksamheter men att de uppger sig uppleva att andra aktörer har sämre kännedom om dessa. På samma sätt uppger sig skolledarna i hög grad, om än inte lika hög grad, prioritera de statliga målen framför andra mål samtidigt som de upplever att andra aktörer inte prioriterar de statliga målen i lika hög grad. Dessa andra aktörer är skolans personal, förvaltning, ansvariga lokala politiker och huvudman. Lägst värden vad gäller prioriteringar av de statliga målen uppger skolledarna att de upplever att lokala politiker har.

Resultatet indikerar att lokala mål ibland kan prioriteras framför statliga, istället för att utgå från och underordnas dessa.
