Abstract [sv]

Undersökningar visar att många människor är negativt inställda till islam. Syftet med denna underökning är att ta reda på vilken bild eleverna har av islam före respektive efter religions-undervisningen om islam, samt att se om elevernas bilder har förändrats.

För att ta reda på detta har jag i två gymnasieklasser delat ut en enkät, dels före och dels ef-ter undervisningen.

Slutsatser som jag har kommit fram till genom min undersökning är att antalet elever som uppgav att de är positivt inställda till islam ökar från 13 % till 17 %. I det stora hela anser jag att elevernas föreställningar har blivit mer positiva. Därmed har undervisningen i skolan bi-dragit till att minska främlingsfientlighet och intolerans.

Abstract [en]

Contemporary surveys have shown that people in Sweden often assume a negative attitude towards Islam. The purpose of this study is to investigate the conceptions and attitudes stu-dents assume towards Islam before they study religions in Swedish schools and to what extent their attitudes are changing after the religious education.

Two groups of students at Upper Secondary School were given questionnaires with state-ments and questions about Islam before and after they pursued studies about the religion.

The result of the study displays that the number of students who stated they had a positive attitude towards Islam increased from 13 to 17 percentages after they pursued knowledge about the religion and the students’ view of Islam became generally more positive after their studies. The study thus indicates that religious education at Upper Secondary School has a significant role to change students’ negative attitudes and conceptions of religions. In exten-sion, these conceptual changes will, in line with the national curriculum, create understanding and tolerance towards religions in a multi-religious society.
