Priority education policies in Sweden in times of decentralization and individualization
Örebro University, Department of Education.
2008 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper discusses policies for priority education target to social and ethnical underprivileged groups in order to reduce school failure in the Swedish School. This study based on text analysis reviews two programs for priority education started by the Swedish National Agency for School Improvements. It argues that these programs tend to reduce question of school failure to ethnic segregation and individualised teacher support. The paper discusses the difficulties to measure the impact these priority education actions have in the goal of all Child rights’ to equitable education. It problematises the lack of an analysis of the impacts of the decentralisation and individualisation ideology for schools in social and ethnical segregated areas. It argues further that educational priority measures based on 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.
