Abstract [en]

This article focuses on a new form of governing that targets a selected group of teachers. Specifically, it analyses how the Swedish so-called advanced teacher reform is enacted at the local level and discusses its implications for teachers’ professionalism. The methodological approach enables a local analysis in a broader international policy context. Using characteristic elements from curriculum theory to analyse the relationship between different levels and elaborating on the linguistic turn of curriculum theory, three concepts are central in the analysis: enactment, linguistic criteria and professionalism. Empirically, the study draws on material from a two-year application process in a medium-sized municipality. The result demonstrates that the local enactment process is clearly influenced by transnational policy trends and that less allowance is made for teachers’ own experience-based knowledge in the second studied year. The linguistic analysis shows how the applicants using the ‘right concepts’ were selected to become ‘advanced teachers’. As complex and qualitative aspects disappeared from the agenda, this type of governing, with its standardized use of language, may reduce schools’ educational potential. Changes like this raise new questions about how schools can maintain and develop democratic and professional values whilst being exposed to new policy trends.

Abstract [en]

This article aims to gain knowledge on how gender and profession are accounted for and expressed in leisure-time teachers’ (LtTs) work in Sweden, with a specific focus on the caring aspects of the profession. Our results show that LtTs take up various positions in navigating between aspects connected to managerialism and external auditing as well as trust and internal valuation. We argue that the need exists for an expanded understanding of care in order to recognise and reward various gendered actions and activities in teachers’ caring orientation. The article provides knowledge to both researchers and practitioners on gendered nuances of care that by tradition have been connected to women.

Abstract [sv]

Syfte/mål

Delstudien ingår i ett större projekt där vi på olika vis synliggör och problematiserar undervisningsbegreppet i förskolan. Syftet med denna delstudie är att undersöka hur förskolechefer tolkar och förstår undervisning och vilka innebörder som framträder.

Metod

Det empiriska materialet består av enkäter med öppna svarsalternativ samt fördjupande intervjuer där förskolechefer ombeds resonera kring sin förståelse och användning av begreppet undervisning i förskolan.

Teoretisk inramning

Teoretiskt placerar vi studien inom ett läroplansteoretisk ramverk där vi avser att studera hur en statlig intention görs i den lokala kontexten, dvs vad blir det av formuleringar i en myndighetsrapport när formuleringen ska realiseras i förskolans vardagliga praktik.

Förväntade slutsatser

Våra preliminära resultat visar på hur förskolecheferna strävar efter att anpassa undervisningsbegreppet till en redan befintlig förskoleverksamhet. I motsats till att skolifiera förskolan så innebär denna strävan att undervisningen förskolefieras vilket i sin tur stärker förskolan som särart.

Relevans för pedagogiskt arbete

Genom att belysa förskolechefens resonemang synliggörs delar av de förutsättningar som ramar in förskollärarnas ansvar i den vardagliga praktiken.
