Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative research study is to examine if and how the teachers from a multicultural International School work with intercultural pedagogy. The school in question isprofiled and consists of both Swedish- and English classes. The study examines if and how the teachers related to the great variety of cultures and created opportunities for integration between the students and handling with values at school. It is important to be aware as a teacher to be able to take an active part in working towards a school that gives possibilities for different cultures to meet. If this is neglected, it may increase the risk of problems and cultural clashes between the students. The questions in issue used for this study are: How do the teachers work with the great variety of cultures in the school? Does an active cultural meeting take place between the different cultures and ethnicities in the different classes in order to make a social/democratic/equal place of meeting that the school should represent? How do they work with the central values at Narsby International School?

The method used for this study was partly structured interviews that consist of an interview guide as a base in order to be able to get near the reason for this study and the questions at issue. Two teachers from the Swedish classes and two teachers from the English classes participated in the interviews. The goal was to bring out their thoughts around integration and the values at the school.

The results showed that the teachers had different approaches concerning what to procure for their students. They had different views on the idea of integration and how to use it the school environment and how to handle the diversity in school based on cultural. Another interesting result was that the school according to three of the teachers had encountered problems and groupings between the students and also the staffing because of the profile. The society usually believes that the segregation only can be found among immigrant- and Swedish groups with different cultures. This study shows how segregation and groupings can also appear between two different groups of immigrant backgrounds on a multicultural school, which is often neglected.
