23 SES 08 A, The Nordic Vision of a School for All Meets the Neo-Liberal Education Policy. Part 1. Reports from Five Countries
Symposium, Part 1
Behind the introduction of a public primary school in 1842 was the idea of education for all its children and youth. These discussions were intense among the political parties in Sweden throughout the 19th century and reached its culmination in preparation of the compulsory school reform in 1962. The vision of a school for all, where all children from the society met, has been one of the cornerstones in the social democratic building of an equal and democratic society from the 1960s to 1980. But time changes and this is no longer the case in the 21st century and the new era of globalisation and market-oriented education, or is it? What has become of the vision of a school for all? There is evidence from e.g. PISA that the school for all are under threat. At the same time it is obvious that system-building continues with school laws that strengthen the rights of children. And furthermore attitude studies show that the great majority of the students like in school and state that they learn. Could it be asserted that a school for all still holds true but is instead fulfilled through strengthening the rights of each child in school?
