Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to illustrate how the position of power / exercise of power are perceived in today's schools from the teacher's perspective. I have examined how students' freedom and democracy education interpreted in real life, and how this affects both teacher and student learning approaches. I would also highlight the need to set standards for children's psychological development related to the consequences will be. I have chosen to perform a qualitative research through individual interviews with five participating teachers from different experiences in different type of school. I have used the hermeneutic method of analysis to analyze the material. My sense was to focus on primary education in recent years. There are many literature and research that topic like this which uses the concept of power. That has been the source of power theory as Michel Foucault. The actual study is based on three different perspectives: the exercise of power, the democratic and educate the psychological / educational need for boundaries. The material for the individual interviews, I have written some of them in text form in empirical data. Results show that teachers need more space to exercise their formal powers, more remedies and consequences and the courage to set boundaries for students. Freedom and democracy must be adapted to pupils' maturity and age.
