Introduction

The aim of the study was to investigate children’s experiences of The Sport for All programme in school (SAP) (idrottsskolan). The specific purpose with this paper was to investigate if boys and girls have equality accessibility to participate in the SAP. The purpose of the SAP is to give children an opportunity to try different sports, with a focus on play and motor learning rather than organized competition.

Methods

This article is based on repeated focus group interviews with one group of 7 ten-year-old girls participating in a SAP in the western part of Sweden. The girls had no, or limited experience, of practice organized sport on their leisure time. The girl’s lived in a low socioeconomic district with a high proportion of immigrants. In the district there is few sports clubs.

Results

The result shows how the boys have the power to dominate the practice and influence the girls’ experiences of the SAP. And sometimes the boys take over and control the practice in so considerable proportions that the girls find it difficult to participate in the SAP. The study shows that the boys have a better opportunity to use their agency (Alanen, 2014), partly in cooperation with the leaders, and be a part of and influence the sport activities in the SAP.

 Conclusions

The girls in the study felt that they were disparaged and excluded cause of the boys’ behaviour. Hence, it is absolutely necessarily that organizer of the SAP pay attention to gender issues and work out guidelines and strategies so that both girls and boys feel included in the SAP:s all activities. As has been discussed before (Flintoff, 2008), and according the results in this study, it requires more than to just start up sport activities and hope that more alternatives will boost more and new participants.

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

Idrottsskolan innebär att flera idrottsföreningar samverkar med skolan, där barn på

fritidshemstiden kontinuerligt under en termin ges möjligheten att prova på olika idrotter.

Den ska bygga på lek och sätta barnen i centrum och inte vara grundad i organiserad

tävlingsverksamhet. Syftet med studien är att bidra med kunskap om flickors erfarenheter av

idrottsskolan.

Metod

Studien baseras på upprepade (två tillfällen) fokusgruppsintervjuer med en grupp bestående

av sju stycken tioåriga flickor som deltog i en idrottsskola på västsvensk ort. Flickorna hade

ingen eller begränsad erfarenhet av organiserad föreningsidrott.

Teoretisk inramning

Studien tar stöd den så kallade ”nya” barndomssociologin, vilket innebär att

barnet sätts i centrum som en aktiv agent i sociala processer. Vidare omfattar studien ett

genusperspektiv i avsikt att belysa genusrelaterade normer och erfarenheter inom

idrottsskolans ram.

Förväntade slutsatser

Det preliminära resultatet visar att de intervjuade flickorna beskriver pojkarna i idrottsskolan

på ett genusstereotypt vis och som en homogen grupp. Flickornas berättelser visar också att

de har mött genusstereotypa uppfattningar från pojkarna om flickor. Enligt deras

erfarenheter ges pojkarnas agens mer utrymme och de påverkar aktivt idrottsskolans

innehåll.

Abstract [sv]

2013 infördes en ny reform om karriärvägar för lärare. Genom att tillsätta 17 000 lärare i en ny position, en formellt högre befattning – förstelärare - förväntas reformen förutom att bidra till skolutveckling och förbättrad måluppfyllelse även att höja läraryrkets status. Efter reformens två första år konstateras att förstelärarpositionen domineras av kvinnor. I artikeln belyses de villkor som kvinnor i lärarkarriärer mött och fortfarande möter, villkor som relateras till de positioner som förstelärarna upplever sig ha. Data från intervjuer och enkäter belyser hur första generationens förstelärare själva upplever att lärarkollegor ser på deras nya position och hur de själva hanterar dessa bemötanden. I analysen av data har vi inspirerats av ett teoretiskt ramverk av Wahl, Holgersson och Höök (1998) om hur ironi och motstånd används för att hantera skilda positioner bland kollegor. Resultaten visar framförallt hur förstelärare utsätts för ironiska kommentarer och gliringar från kollegor, men även hur förstelärare gör motstånd och hävdar sin position. 

 

Begreppet position används i artikeln i två betydelser. Å ena sidan refererar position till den formella befattningen som förstelärarna har fått genom förordnandet. Å andra sidan hänvisar positionsbegreppet till den symboliska plats som förstelärarna försätts och försätter sig själva i genom interaktion med andra i yrkesvardagens praktiker.

Abstract [en]

The article focuses on how leisure-time teachers (LtT) in Sweden both confirm and resist the array of new demands related to leisure-time centres (LtC). The data consist of interviews with six LtTs. The results are interpreted as representing different parts of the LtT's professionalism and show that the LtTs through their tellings constructs certain children, problems and solutions as a response to the demands in their work, thereby both confirming and resisting an underdog position. By constructing a manageable child they legitimise their professionalism and vice versa: constructing a child they are not capable of handling underlines their work conditions and offers a response to the discussion of insufficient quality, thereby confirming the low status of LtTs.

Abstract [en]

The article explores how male primary school teachers view and relate to other people's expectations of them as teachers. The empirical data consists of interviews with seven teachers working in compulsory school grades three to five in a large-sized town in Sweden. The theoretical work on relations among masculinities developed by Connell and the theoretical concept of care discussed by Noddings are used in the analysis work. Results show on one hand that the teachers view themselves as privileged due to their minority position and on the other hand feel considerable pressure from others as well as from themselves to perform a certain kind of masculinity. The teachers' descriptions of their everyday practices show that they sometimes gather in homo-social groups and demonstrate a care orientation by trying to constitute the welfare of the pupils.
