School as a way of succeeding : youths view on motivation and roads to success (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att granska elevers uppfattningar om dagens svenska skola som framgångsfaktor. Tre frågeställningar har konstruerats; (a) hur ser eleverna på motivation i skolan, (b) hur ser eleverna på deras framtida väg till framgång samt (c) ser eleverna andra vägar till framgång utöver den väg som skola och utbildning erbjuder och hur påverkar detta deras motivation att prestera i skolan? Då syftet är av en tydlig subjektiv karaktär, har en kvalitativ metod och teknik tillämpats. Studiens teoretiska utgångspunkt utgörs av två teman; motivation och vägar till framgång. Dessa två ämnesområden innehåller underrubriker som utgör den tematiska ordning som uppsatsen följer. Empirin i studien bygger på åtta semistrukturerade kvalitativa intervjuer med elever i grundskolans år nio. Studiens resultat visar att ungdomarna upplever en påtaglig ambivalens i deras motivation i skolan samt i deras syn på vägar till framgång. Samtiden präglas av övergången från det moderna samhället till det postmoderna, vilket medför att ungdomarna ser möjligheten att välja mellan skolans väg till framgång och alternativa vägar. En motivationskonflikt uppstår som påverkar ungdomarnas prestationer i skolan.

Abstract [en]

The study’s purpose is to examine students' perceptions of today's Swedish school as a factor of success. Three questions have been designed; (a) what are the students’ views on motivation in school, (b) what are the students’ views on their future path to success and (c) do students see other avenues to success in addition to the road of education and training offered, and how does this affect their motivation to perform at school? Because the purpose is of a clear subjective character, a qualitative methodology and technique have been applied. The study’s theoretical basis consists of two themes; motivation and paths to success. These two topics have generated subheadings, which provide the thematic order in which the paper follows. The empirical work is based on eight semi-structured qualitative interviews with secondary school students. The results show that the youths are experiencing a tangible ambivalence in their motivation in school and in their view of paths to success. The contemporary period is characterized by the transition from modern society to the post modern, which means that young people see the opportunity to choose between the school's road to success and alternative routes. A motivational conflict arises that effect the youths’ performance at school.
