Abstract [en]

What Role of God and National Curriculum

in School life?

A Comparative Study of Schools with a Muslim Profile in England and

Sweden

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of principles and

ethics that dominate four schools with a Muslim profile, two in Sweden and

two in England.

The specific objectives of the study are: to examine educational policies with

regard to primary schools with a confessional orientation in Sweden and England;

to compare two primary schools with a Muslim profile in Sweden with

two such schools in England; and in these four schools to describe and examine

the manner in which school heads, teachers and other staff deal with the encounters

between the values found in the national curriculum of Sweden and

England respectively and the principles and ethics embodied in their private

philosophy of life; to describe and examine the views of school heads, teachers

and other staff on school leadership and any educational, ideological or personal

role model they emulate; to describe and examine the expectations and views of

parents with regard to the school with a Muslim profile; and describe the views

of the pupils regarding their schools and the norms and values in school and;

finally, to examine the attitudes of some local authority politicians in Sweden

to MP schools.

The findings indicate great difference between the two schools with a Muslim

profile in Sweden, on the one hand, and the two schools in England, on

the other. The fundamental reason for that lies in the parameters which had

been established in these countries as the conditions for being permitted to

establish and run a school with a confessional orientation. Since the schools

in both countries had conformed to the relevant legislation and framework

in their respective countries with regard to such schools, they had therefore

consequently developed in different directions.
