Abstract [en]

The chapter reviews the present educational policies in Sweden expected to guarantee that the principle education for all reaches the entire population in school age. It critically analyses the results of these policies in recent years.

Concerns for equity and equality in educational opportunities have a considerable long history in Sweden. This is much connected to discourses and practices embodied in the construction of the so called welfare society or Sweden as “the people’s home”. Education in Sweden has moved from a centralised system with strong focus in equality of access to a decentralised structure with a considerable focus on individualization. The traditional homogeneity of the Swedish school population has, in the last few decades, been strongly challenged by the phenomenon of immigration. The paper questions the impact that recent policies expected compensate inequalities could have for a long term development of society. It argues further that the measures which have been implemented in order to guarantee equality of results via an organizational and pedagogical separation of the students brings also the risks of increasing the discrimination of the students on the bases of language or ethnic background.
