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]

This article explores how our understanding of ambivalence would shift if we saw it as an inherent and essential part of the ordinary work of education. Following Bauman's sociology of the stranger and Derrida's deconstructions of hospitality, the article unfolds in three parts. In the first part we discuss the preconditions of modern education which since the Enlightenment has been guided by the postulate that there is and ought to be a rational order in the social world. In the second part we consider the intolerance of strangers the modern will-to-order has caused. Since the stranger appears as a liminal category that falls between the boundaries of already established social categories, she can only be viewed as an antithesis of a well-ordered society. In the third part we ask how educational spaces hospitable to strangers can be opened up, and argue that we would do better not to construe living with ambivalence as a problem, but as a quest for humanity and justice
