Abstract [en]

Sweden is widely regarded as one of the most egalitarian societies in the world, not the least with respect to education access and school inclusion, but this presentation will suggest that there are high levels of social injustice and inequality within the Swedish education system and educational politics, historically and regionally, and that levels of inequality have also risen in recent years, following the introduction of principles of market governance. Examples will be given to illustrate these inequalities with respect to different curricula and geographic spaces and in terms of identified factors of inequity such as race, gender and dis/abilities. The special situation in rural areas will be included in the analysis which has been historically contextualized and links closely with work related to the production of a recent book manuscript that aims to develop a coherent and symmetrical theoretical and empirically grounded argument about historical inequality in Sweden’s education system.
