Abstract [en]

Although most boys achieve rather well in school a description of boys as low achieving, lazy and illiterate have become hegemonic in the contemporary Swedish debate on boys and schooling. The most problematic boys are considered to dwell in three Swedish country districts. Informed by critical masculinity studies, feminist post structuralism and queer theory this presentation focus on how gender, class, heteronormatvity and metronormativity intersect in the resent construction of the ideal pupil, knowledge, problematic boys and the helpful female literacy teacher. It is argued that a performative, metronormative and colonial discourse and a heteronormative gender model constitutes the female teacher as a Lady Bountiful, given a mission to enlighten and modernise boys, and positions boys in a complementary and stereotype masculinity position. The last part of the paper problematise the description of boys as generally low achieving by exemplifying how boys in four primary school classes relate to schoolwork
