Abstract [en]

The article outlines two lines of thought in the current debate on education. First, the declining results in schools are seen as an overarching problem for the school system, second, individual performance within schools is disconnected from societal, collective goals. We then discuss different modes of thinking of socialization in relation to general didactics. The teachers’ role in that sense is to socialize the next generation into a given social order. Another mode of thinking regards the young person as discovering society, within society. We argue, inspired by Wolfgang Klafki, for a conception of “general didactics” as a response to the need for an education for society that has solidarity as an overarching aim, rather than to produce new members to society. We end the article with the conclusion that the limits of general didactics are in one way or the other societal, inasmuch public education reflects the need for social (re-)production of knowledge, norms and values.

Abstract [en]

This study examines the encounter of Somali parents with their children's teachers and how these relations "affect" their possibility of supporting their children's attaining a successful school experience. The study is inspired by and combines the insight and concept of social capital developed by Coleman and Bourdieu. The parents realize that they lack the knowledge and expertise to support their children in their educational endeavor and have neither the material nor ideational support to compensate individual limitations to support their children in the encounter with the Swedish school.

Abstract [en]

In this article we examine two different but interconnected problems, which weaken the struggle for and the idea of equal education in the Swedish comprehensive educational system. One of the problems is the increasing segrega-tion of the Swedish comprehensive school. This segregation is characterized socio, cultural and economic difference. In these areas the concentration of children with diverse ethnicity and low income background are high, while in other areas the opposite is true. In this article we focus on the former schools. These schools are characterized as low achieving schools, and schools that are in crisis. The second issue that is intimately connected to the low achieving school that we examine is the disposition and to some extent the composition of the teaching force. We argue that there is a disconnection between the two aspects, and ground the problem in teacher training. We argue that the current teacher education is not constructed to prepare teachers to meet the challeng-es in multiethnic schools located in socio-economic deprived areas. The article ends with a critical discussion of “low performing school” and the role of teacher education in preparing teachers for schools in segregated areas.

Abstract [en]

In this article we explore some consequences of present day obsession with “learning” and how such obsession seems to make perfect sense for an education exclusively aiming at making a living in a neo-liberal economy. Instead of celebrating the economical aspects of learning, we highlight the importance of building democratic capacities in an ever changing world by taking education back to the public. The perspectives offered in this article are to be considered as theoretical and critical contributions to the discussion about current educational circumstances, in which discourses of learning seem to dominate the entire field of education.
