Abstract [en]

Carin Fröjd (2017): Tension fields in the education about values in social studies. An interview with social studies teachers in secondary schools about their relationship to the fundamental values in the Swedish curriculum Lgy11.

This thesis aims to explore how teachers in social studies understand the fundamental values of the Swedish curriculum for the secondary school (Lgy 11). Although there are several previous studies of how Swedish teachers understand specific fundamental values there are few studies aimed to describe a overall understanding of the curriculums fundamental values based on the teachers perspective. The purpose of this thesis is divided into two parts.

In the first part the aim is to identify the tension that can exist between different perspectives in the theoretical and practical research on education of values and sociocivic education. The thesis identifies five central fields of tension that is recurring in the research.

In part two the aim is to examine how social studies teachers in secondary schools report that they interpreters and relate to the fundamental values of the Swedish public school. The fields I then use as a theoretical framework for understanding the teachers statements about their work with values. The result of the study suggests that the teachers are well based in the Swedish curriculums fundamental values but prioritise some values more than others. Witch values that are prioritised is very different between the examined schools.

Since the Swedish National Agency of Education recently have been addressing that it is essential that the education for establishing values should be seen as a coherent mission and not be divided into parts or specific problem areas, I believe this work may be a relevant contribution. The result shows that some areas are more prioritised than others in the schools and some parts seem to be less prioritised. The first part provide a framework that can be a tool for understanding witch parts that is prioritised and witch are not.
