Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to illustrate the conceptions of the purpose of preschool education that is discursively constructed in the new Läroplanen för förskolan (2018) (the Preschool Curriculum). The study also included examining which discursive battles that are visible in the material and further, which discourse is in a hegemonic position. The theoretical basis is Biestas (2011) three educational functions: qualification, socialization and subjectification. Methodological inspiration is retrieved from Faircloughs (1992) critical discourse analysis where the concepts of intertextuality, interdiscursivity and modality have been used to analyze how discourses emerged and how they are presented. The material included in the analysis was Läroplanen för förskolan (2018) which has been analyzed in relation to: Starting strong III (OECD 2013), Uppdrag om en översyn av läroplanen för förskolan (Regeringen 2017), Förskolans kvalitet och måluppfyllelse (Skolinspektionen 2018) and Läroplanen för förskolan (2016). The analysis led to identification of four discourses; the Edu(Care) discourse, the future-oriented discourse, the democratic discourse and the cultivation discourse. All discourses articulates the desired purpose of the preschool education in different ways. The result shows that, among other things, the hegemonic discourse is that of Edu(Care), where emphasis is primarily on learning. Otherwise, discourses are mostly forward-looking and aim at what is to be achieved in the future. Even children's curiosity and creativity is presented as the basis of an expected development of the child.
