Factors influencing principals' work distributing resources for gifted students in mathematics. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Rektorers pedagogiska ledarskap har betydelse för hur arbetet på skolorna fortlöper med syfte att främja särskilt begåvade elever i matematik och att dessa elever ska få den stimulans de är berättigade. Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur rektorer påverkas av ramfaktorer vid resursfördelning i matematik med fokus på särskilt begåvade elever. I studien har intervjuer använts som metod för att ta reda på rektorers påverkan av ramfaktorer vid resursfördelning i matematik. Ramfaktorteorin är den teori som beskriver vilka ramar och faktorer rektorer har att förhålla sig till. Resultatet visar att av rektorerna indirekt drar paralleller till budget i frågan om resursfördelningen, men kopplar också detta till flera andra ramfaktorer som samverkar. Alla rektorer uppger också att lärarnas egen kompetens är viktig för att kunna stimulera särskilt begåvade elever inom matematik. Slutsatsen i undersökningen blir därför att rektorers resursfördelning inom matematik med fokus på elever med särskild begåvning är styrd av flera faktorer och att dessa påverkar. De resultat som finns i studien kan ge ökad kunskap hos lärare eller andra kollegor för att det bidrar till en ökad medvetenhet om rektorers ramar och faktorer i det vardagliga arbetet.

Abstract [en]

How school works with gifted students depends on the pedagogical leadership of the principals’ and their decisions regarding the distribution of resources. It’s these decisions that define how the students develop and if they get the right kind of stimulants that they need. The aim of this study is to examine how the frame factor theory influences the principals’ work with distributing resources for gifted students in mathematics. This study have been using interviews as method to find out how the frame factor theory influences principals work. The result of the study shows that principals instantly draw parallels to the budget in the question of distribution of resources, but also link this to several other framework factors that interact with each other. All of the principals state that the teachers’ competence is important in order to stimulate gifted students in mathematics. The conclusion of this study is that the principals are controlled by several of the factors in the frame factor theory regarding the distributing resources for gifted students in mathematics. The results from the study can increase the teachers’ knowledge, and other colleagues, and hopefully it can increase an awareness of how the principals' work regarding distributing resources for gifted students in mathematics are affected by the frame factor theory in their line of work every day.
