Elevråd: Elevrådsarbete i två skolor

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to determine whether the student councils at two schools really have the power to influence, or if it is a matter of mock democracy. I wanted to determine how the student councils work in reality. I conducted my investigation through personal and qualitative interviews with the board of the student council, a social studies teacher and the principle/school management at both schools. After the interviews I compared an analysed my findings. The results show that the two schools work very differently when it comes to studentdemocracy, and even have very different levels of ambition when it comes to the degree of influence that the student council should have at their respective schools. Still, in reality the council at both schools function much the same. They are not fully functional and don’t manage to accomplish much, other than basic things like what the school should look like or which shirts the council should have. My opinion is that there seems be some extent of mock democracy at one of the schools, but that at the same timed there is the need to further examine and determine what studentdemocracy really means today, and should mean in the future, in the context of student councils. Otherwise the schools will never have a fully functional student council.
