Abstract [sv]

Non-public schools and segregation: give a dog a bad name and hang him?ABSTRACT. This article analyses three basic assumptions behind the view that a common school for all is better than a so called segregated school system. The assumptions are 1) that segregation makes it difficult for future citizens to communicate and cooperate across social and cultural boundaries; 2) that it inhibits the development of autonomy and critical self-reflection; and 3) that children with low-valued cultural capital will be stuck in low-achievement schools. The tenacity of these assumptions is discussed from empirical and philosophical points of view. Finally, the impossibility of the present corporate state to be neutral with regard to the good life is pointed out. In view of the lack of knowledge about what school system actually contribute to autonomy and a communicative society, as well as of the impossibility of an ethically neutral state, the most just conclusion seems to be that parents should have the possibility to freely choose school for their children
