    Vad räknas som kunskap i den svenska gymnasieskolan?: En kritisk diskursanalys av förändrade policyformeringar mellan 1990-talet och 2010-talet i svensk gymnasieskola2012In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 21, no 2, p. 15-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the question – what problems is the current reform of the Swedish upper secondary school considered being the solution of – this article analyzes the political dimension of knowledge in the way it is discursively visualized in policy texts. With methodological inspiration from the Critical discourse analysis (CDA) two education policy reforms, published for the 1990s- and the 2010’s reformation of the upper secondary school, have been compared with an aim to study discursive shifts over time concerning changing politics of knowledge. To understand and explain these shifts the relation between declared knowledge discourses and the social practice, that these discourses are embedded in, is discussed. The results in the article point to some discursive shifts. The 1990’s policy texts were dominated by a hybridization of a deregulated objective-rational- and a socio-cultural oriented knowledge discourse. These discourses have now been challenge by a form of hybridization of a regulated working lifeoriented and a content- and result oriented knowledge discourse. These discursive movements are finally discussed in relation to what different societal problems these reforms are considered to be a solution to.

    Artefaktanvändning i undervisningssammanhang: En privilegieringsanalys2008In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 47-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of artefacts is a central part of many human activities. In education, for example, people use them to deal with didactic problems otherwise not possible to solve. However, even though often taken for granted and not explicitly thought of in most practices, the use of artefacts is not given beforehand. In fact, they are constituted in sociocultural contexts where different agents, including the users, may have contributed. Consequently, this is an issue possible to discuss and debate. The aim of this article is to describe an approach in studies of how the use of artefacts is constituted in educational settings. Examples from video recorded classroom situations illustrate how artefacts contribute to meaning making in practice. It is also argued that there is a need for further studies and discussions about the use of artefacts in education.

    Pragmatiska studier av meningsskapande2008In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 11-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall aim of the article is to present a pragmatic approach for studies of meaning-making used in the articles of this issue. The approach, which is developed within the SMEDgroup (Studies of Meaning-making in Educational Discourses), mainly builds on the writings of John Dewey, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Michel Foucault. A common ambition for the researchers in SMED is to enable studies and discussions on questions concerning how meanings are made in people’s actions. Another ambition is to carry out these studies beyond assumptions of dualism, essentialism, causality and determinism. In this perspective learning and socialization are viewed in a communicative perspective. We argue in the article that our approach makes it possible, and important, to study meaning-making in action in different kinds of educational practices.

    Abstract [en]

    The concept of “democracy” is highly emphasized in society as wellas in Swedish school curricula. This article analyses the “supply-side” of education – the textbooks. What various conceptions ofdemocracy do lower secondary pupils meet in history textbooksand how is democracy presented in these books? Have there beenany changes in how the concept of democracy has been introducedbetween the 1960’s and the 2000’s? The first purpose of this articleis to analyse the concept of democracy in lower secondary historytextbooks and confront these representations and interpretationswith political and philosophical theories about democracy. Sec-ondly, I intend to find out whether the textbooks describe andexplain democracy in a historical context that can be useful forlearning and understanding. A contested concept like democracymay also open a way for pupils to understand the historical proc-ess and stimulate their history consciousness.

    Knowledge capabilities for sustainable development in global classrooms–local challenges2011In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 35-58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Young Masters Programme provides young people around the world with a net–based global–local learning environment for sustainable development. The present study investigates certain aspects of the implementation of this programme in the secondary schools of a Swedish municipality, in the context of the Lund Calling project. The research focuses on critical abilities to act globally, referred to as “knowledge capabilities”, and how they relate to the implementation process of initiating global learning for sustainable development (GLSD). A phenomenographic approach and semi–structured interviews were used in the investigation of the experiences of secondary school pupils, teachers and headmasters who participated in the project. Participants’ experiences of the changes carried out are described in relation to examples of knowledge capabilities needed for GLSD. Critical knowledge capabilities found to have been developed through the implementation were: to take command, and to collaborate. Critical knowledge capabilities perceived as necessary, but not developed through the programme were: to be prepared, to act in a transdisciplinary manner, and to lead for a holistic understanding.

    The political voice of young citizens: Educational conditions for political conversation - school and social media2012In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 97-119Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Political conversation is a prerequisite for social cohesion in society. Due to digital media, a new educational situation has been shaped that creates different conversational possibilities in which the political conversation can take place. The analysis of two cases, the international students' questionnaire used in the ICCS 2009 and findings from research in a Swedish net community, represents two spaces - school and social media - containing specific educational conditions for political conversation. These two spaces are used to problematize and discuss, in terms of political socialisation, educational conditions for political conversation in school. The Political Voice of Young Citizens is shown to be framed by different conditions depending on where, when, and how the political conversation is institutionally arranged and directed.

    Abstract [en]

    This article presents an empirical analysis of textbooks for International Economics in upper secondary schools with a focus on moral responsibility for the environment and society. The purpose is to analyze the meanings offered to students regarding the scope of taking moral responsibility in relation to the role of a business person. Four different meanings are formulated as a result of the study: one states that a business only can take responsibility in order to obey laws and respond to consumer demands, a second and third meanings imply that, a business can make demands, to different extents, on subcontractors. A fourth meaning include that a business (apart from making profit) also can be a tool for change. The different meanings are discussed in relation to different functions of education (Biesta 2008, Säfström 2005) and Education for Sustainable Development. The main argument is that a tool for change-meaning, contributing to a subjectification function of education, ought to have an increased space in education, if we want students who are engaged in sustainability issues regarding the environment and the society also to see a future working within the business world. This is equally important if we want business students to see a future working for sustainable development.

    Authorizing or auditing – national tests as a governing tool

    NPM, particularly in the form of output evaluations, have had a large impact on Swedish educational reforms over the past decades. This article focuses on the governing of schools and the professional status of teachers by examining how teachers have experienced the new national tests, introduced in compulsory schools in 2014 in social study subjects. Two ideal types of governing, authorizing and auditing, provide the theoretical framework. The empirical material consists of focus group interviews. The results expose a tension in teacher experience. On the one hand, the teachers feel validated by the tests; on the other, they oppose the questioning of their profession that the tests imply. Trust is a key factor at play. The current way Swedish schools are governed signals a distrust in teachers. At the same time, the teachers display a significant level of trust in the state, combined with a limited professional confidence. This reinforces the status of teaching as a semi-profession.

    Abstract [en]

    Teachers’ relational competence: A concept discussion, supported by Martin Buber’s concepts of “the social” and “the interhuman”. Current research and policy documents treat relational competence as an important part of teacher professionalism. Relational competence is generally understood as the ability to build respectful and trusting relationships with students and others. However, research in the field is scarce and theoretical discussions are rare. This article outlines a framework for understanding fundamental aspects of the concept. Buber’s (1990b) distinction between “the social” and “the interhuman” is adopted to provide theoretical support for the framework. Based on this distinction, I construct two forms of relational competence represented by the expressions “attitude to relationships” and “attitude in relationships”. The framework could be used as a “puzzle picture” (Asplund, 1991), i.e., a picture of one phenomenon that includes a picture of another, though the two pictures cannot be focused on simultaneously. The practical implications of the concept are addressed as well.

Two different approaches to the issue are outlined, one instrumental and one interactionist, where the former is considered to be misleading.

    Abstract [en]

    This article attempts to make visible everyday activities and underlines the importance of ethnographic studies of communication in order to allow for expanded understandings of diversity and bilingualism in the context of ”one school for all”. The article is based on studies conducted in visual educational arenas (i e settings for Deaf students that can be understood as ”segregating integrated”). Technological tools are used as resources and a natural part of activities in these arenas. In addition different linguistic systems are used in complex patterned ways. Here different codes and systems are chained  together in two ways: local chaining and event chaining. Demystifying interaction between human beings and between human beings and cultural artefacts and tools in institutional settings enables an understanding of bilingualism in terms of complex discursive-technological practices . This is contrasted against a common reductionistic conceptualisation of bilingualism that is problematic.

    Abstract [en]

    Multilingual students’ participation in national tests in mathematics – discursive prerequisites. This article explores discursive prerequisites in test-taking for second language learners with other mother tongues than Swedish. Four students were interviewed in 2016 during their final year of compulsory school. The results imply that multilingual students are positioned as disadvantaged within testing. This phenomenon is mainly situated in a competitive discourse with several subordinated discourses that further position the students: A discourse of justice positioned the students as being sorted or left behind, a discourse of handling the assessment positioned the students as caretakers and a discourse of future challenges positioned the students as struggling while learning, being capable to learn or facing positive challenges. The results imply that national testing is a personal and relational experience and gives rise to issues of legitimacy and equality. These issues should be considered in policy-making, the construction and the carrying out of tests as well as in the conclusions which are based on the results on individual, group and organisational levels.

    Multilingual students’ participation in national tests in mathematics – discursive prerequisites. This article explores discursive prerequisites in test-taking for second language learners with other mother tongues than Swedish. Four students were interviewed in 2016 during their final year of compulsory school. The results imply that multilingual students are positioned as disadvantaged within testing. This phenomenon is mainly situated in a competitive discourse with several subordinated discourses that further position the students: A discourse of justice positioned the students as being sorted or left behind, a discourse of handling the assessment positioned the students as caretakers and a discourse of future challenges positioned the students as struggling while learning, being capable to learn or facing positive challenges. The results imply that national testing is a personal and relational experience and gives rise to issues of legitimacy and equality. These issues should be considered in policy-making, the construction and the carrying out of tests as well as in the conclusions which are based on the results on individual, group and organisational levels.

    Abstract [en]

    The article presents an overview of content and perspecitves in the U N Con- vention on the rights of the child. The four main categories of rights; the right to survive, the right to develop, the right to be protected and the right to participa- te are discussed. The distinction between absolute and relative rights, and bet- ween rights in view of the the child as object, and rights in view of the child as subject is elaborated. Different meanings of the concept ”child perspective” are discussed and the necessity to use a multi-dimensional approach to the concept is put forward, including the awareness that views on children also can be nega- tively loaded. The four fundamental articles in the Convention (articles 2, 3, 6 and 12) and the two articles concerned with schooling (articles 28 and 29) are presented and discussed with particular focus on their relevance for life in scho

    Abstract [en]

    A travel in common or separate travels – policy texts on core subjects in the Swedish upper secondary school 1990 to 2009. In this article eight policy texts from the period of 1990 to 2009 are analyzed with reference to their attention to core subjects on different programs. Questions asked to the texts are: Are students on various programs to receive the same teaching in core subjects? How are the expressed intentions legitimized? Using concepts from Lilie Chouliaraki and Norman Fairclough's (1999) critical discourse analysis (CDA) and Basil Bernstein's (2000) concept of classification, it is concluded that during this period a shift takes place in policy, from keeping form and content of core subject teaching on different programs in common, into making a difference in the form and content of core subject teaching on different programs. Furthermore, the legitimization process and consequences of the analyzed discursive drift in policy to the positions of pupils on different programs are discussed.

    Hur villkorar juridifieringen lärarprofessionens arbete med skolans kunskaper och värden?2016In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 11-31Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How does juridification condition the teaching profession’s work with educational knowledge and values? Over the last twenty years the governance of Swedish education has radically changed. As a specific part of this transformation, the aim of this article is to investigate how juridification conditions the teaching profession’s work with educational knowledge and values as formulated in the national curriculum. The article makes use of two governing logics – the management of placement and the management of expectation – that position teachers’ assignments and possible actions in different ways. The empirical material consists of national policy texts. The analysis points to different dilemmas that result from juridification, namely that teachers are expected to shoulder a decentralized moral responsibility and at the same time be controlled against nationally formulated rights and obligations.

    Abstract [en]

    To be educated in a world that is shared with others. This article’soverall purpose is to contribute to the discussion on the relevance ofDemocracy and Education (1916) a hundred years after its publication. Itis first and foremost John Dewey as a political thinker, whose philosophywas determined by a commitment to the values of community, publiclife, and shared experience, that stands in focus. The aim is twofold;to begin with the article sets out to discuss the concept of democracyand its roots in Dewey’s early writings and simultaneously a foundationfor conceptualizations in later works. Democracy and Education is thusinterpreted at the intersection of early findings and future work. Secondly,in the light of reading Democracy and Education between his past andfuture writings, the article sheds light on the shortcomings of the presenteducational debate and argues for the importance to re-think the socialfunction of education amidst the private and the public sphere.

    Abstract [en]

    Since the beginning of the 1990s, Swedish parents have had the possibility of choosing schools for their children based on publicly funded school vouchers. At the same time, free schools started to develop, competing for the pupils. Even though the free schools are a part of the educational system, obligated to follow the same rules as the public schools, they describe themselves as different, something outside the system yet inside the system. The aim of the paper is to analyse and discuss the different strategies of integration into and differentiation within the educational system. Economic theory on competition and differentiation strategies is used to analyse the content of the three largest free school companies’ websites. The free schools mainly integrate into the legal aspects of the educational system and differentiate themselves from other schools by making claims about qualitative superiority. Different free schools position themselves differently relative to the educational system.

    Normers roll i ett mål- och kriterierelaterat bedömningssystem2017In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 21-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Relating to norms in a criterion-referenced system of evaluation.

    Since the 1990s, the Swedish system of evaluation is criterion-referenced. In this system, one of the main purposes of national tests is to promote equity in assessment. This article explores how teachers in the subject fields of English and Swedish in compulsory school (grades 6 and 9), understand the relationship between the act of grading and the national test results. We find that the teachers we have interviewed typically dismiss quantitative data and comparisons at aggregated levels and we argue that this dismissal has its root cause in an erroneous understanding of criterion-referenced assessment as completely independent of norms. A better, more nuanced understanding of the role of norms in criterion-referenced assessment would, we suggest, allow teachers to make better use of the potential of national tests in promoting equity.

    Förbättrad interaktion mellan studerande och lärare genom ökad professionalism?2002In: Utbildning och Demokrati, ISSN 1102-6472, E-ISSN 2001-7316, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 91-105Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, there has been a lively debate on the state of schools. Two aspects have so far been discussed separately: the problematic status of the teaching profession, and interaction problems between teachers and students. These aspects have been considered in an inquiry involving 110 upper secondary school students. The analysis revealed severe criticism of teachers' actions and attitudes towards their students. Using this study as a basis, several theories are put forward - starting point for understanding the causes of the problems that have provoked students' criticism. These theories cover the following factors: interaction, the generation gap, relations between Human Service Organization Workers and their clients, and dissonance in the interaction between teachers and students. One particular implication is that teachers' inadequate professionalism may limit their possibilities to counteract the tendencies noted in the theoretical approaches mentioned above.
