Abstract [en]

This paper is based on a study of the Christian religious school. In Sweden today, surveys have shown that there is a common fear and negative attitude towards Christian religious schools. Despite this fact these schools increase in numbers, which makes it relevant to investigate what reasons the parents base their decision on when making Christian religious schools their school of choice for their children. The formulation of the question in this paper is therefore based on why the parents choose to place their children in a Christian religious school. Previous research on this topic is very scarce and poor, which makes it a relevant topic to investigate more thoroughly. The method used in the survey is interviews made with parents, teachers and principals who all have a connection to a Christian religious school; either by having their children placed in one, or by working in one them selves.

The result of the survey shows that parents often place their children in a Christian religious school because they feel safeness in this kind of school, which is in line with the previous research that has been made in this area. The safeness is often related to that the parents share common ideals and visions with the school. Moreover the result of the survey also shows that common conceptions among people about Christian religious schools not at all reflect the reality. An example of such a misconception is that children in Christian religious schools get segregated with people of similar class or religious background to a greater extent than children in regular public schools, which the well-known researchers claim. In fact, this survey showed the exact opposite; the municipal schools are in general more segregated than their religious equivalents.
