Abstract [en]

Thirty years after Lortie wrote Schoolteacher, part of his study was revived through a study amongst teacher students at Karlstad University. The study focuses on recruitment and reaffirmation and the aim of the study was to find out why teacher students choose to become a teacher. Just over two hundred students responded to a questionnaire and, in addition, around twenty students were interviewed. In line with Lorties results, it turned out that the main reason to become a teacher anno 2008 was the possibility to work with children and people. Even contribution to change could be considered as a dominant motivation for choosing the profession. The results of the study could have consequences for teacher educators but even for recruitment offices
