Structural Injustices in Swedish Education: Academic Selection and Educational Inequalities
University of Borås, Faculty of Librarianship, Information, Education and IT. (PAUS)
2018 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this book is to explore aspects of education justice and equity in relation to an educational system that is generally considered fairer and more equitable than most others: that of Sweden. There are seriously good reasons for undertaking this project. The education system in Sweden does seem to be ostensibly open and inclusive (Gudmundsson 2013) with upwards of 85% of all child cohorts between the ages of 3 and 19 being included for 6 hours or more each weekday in some form of organised institutional education or day-care, regardless of their social class, gender or racial or ethnic heritage or any possible physical or mental disabilities. And as has been suggested by the OECD in relation to its education justice barometer, this is perhaps internationally remarkable. However, perhaps equally remarkable is the lack of impact the investments have had in terms of the creation of greater levels of class consciousness and significantly reduced gender disparities, racial and ethnic equality or social and material distributions of power in society at large.
