I see no equivalence in everyday meetings (Swedish)
The establishment of functional parental-involvement in preschools has become a larger and more complex area since the Swedish curriculum was revised in 2010. Parental involvement is important, not only as an incentive for the individual child’s development, but also regarding a democratic perspective of parent participation. The diversity of parents makes overall strategic governmental efforts to enable parental-involvement ineffective and each preschool must handle the heterogeneous parental group in their area. Parents who lack the knowledge of Swedish are more likely to be excluded from strategic parental-involvement efforts in preschools, which made us curious to inquire into efforts that aim to include non-Swedish-speaking parents. Through interviews with preschool teachers and managers we aimed to discover discourse orientated patterns in discussions regarding non-Swedish speaking-parents overall and look into which methods and aspects teachers found critical in constructing functional parental-involvement with this specific group. We executed a discourse-orientated analyze on our findings and relate it to methods mentioned by teachers to see how they impact each other. We found that teachers describe the group issued in ways of both similarities with the general group of parents and at the same time as distinctive characters with unique needs and therefor organized their parental-involvement efforts accordingly.
