23 SES 08 A, Knowledge Politics and Scientification of Education Reform (part 2)
Symposium, Continued from 23 SES 07 A
In varying forms of expression the society and its member’s need access to results of the performance of societal institutions. This paper will focus on the development, needs and uses of different types of “school results”; nationally as well as internationally produced. International results should be considered as an effect of, or at least related to, national needs such as technical or symbolic rationality and legitimacy. To understand the impact of “results” it is crucial to understand how each country's “performance culture” evolves. The paper discusses the production and uses of results in Sweden over the 20th century. It will be obvious that results are produced and used for symbolic, cultural/traditional and functional reasons. The main argument is that the shape “school results” are given from time to time must be understood in relation to the needs and wants of different discursive coalitions on the educational field. For the case of Sweden it would be a simplification to claim that bureaucrats have used science to legitimate technocratic reform. Rather the case have been that coalitions of progressive educationalist used science to legitimate progressive reforms, but cultural and political uses of these results morphed original progressive ideals into more technocratic structures.
