Svenska i enlighet med skolans värdegrund?

Abstract [en]

This study aimed at supplementing the Swedish National Agency for Education’s (Skolverket) study (2006) I enlighet med skolans värdegrund? which investigated whether textbooks in various school subjects went against the fundamental values in the curricula Lpf94 and Lpo 94. Due to this study’s supplementing intention, this study uses a similar title as Skolverket. By adding a new subject (Swedish) to Skolverket’s study, this study also strived to show how discrimination might be present in other subjects than the ones Skolverket involved in their study. More precisely, this study examined how the aspects ethnic belonging, functional limitation, gender, religion and sexual orientation (Skolverket used the same aspects in their study) are presented in a textbook for the Swedish subject in order to find out whether or not discrimination occurs. In the analysis I have used a combination of intersectionality and discourse analysis in order to understand and explain findings from the textbook.This study shows that the initial thought that discrimination occurs in more school subjects’ textbooks than the ones involved in Skolverket’s study, was valid. Many examples of differentiation between the norm “We” and the diverged “Them” were found. Moreover, people in the book were seldom presented as foster more than one of the investigated aspects (ethnic belonging, functional limitation, gender, religion and sexual orientation) leaving thebook one-dimensional and focused on normalcy.
