26 SES 02 B, Comparing Educational Governance
The decentralized Scandinavian school structure with the municipal school committee as a central factor between the municipal council and other school interests gives the school board a central role in the implementation of the centrally decided school legislation from the parliament. Therefore it is a central question in modern Scandinavian schooling what are the ways of influence and what power mechanisms are in play throughout the schooling system. This paper analyses what power and influence mean in a school board context. We will conduct comparisons across countries and look into which influence and power relations there are between the school committee as the central focal point and the schools’ most important interests. Therefore we will look at the relations between the board and the national parliamentary level, the superintendent/the municipal administration, the chair of the board, the principals/schools, and lastly the parents and the students. These relations between the board and its stakeholders will be analysed in the terms of power and influence.
