Abstract [en]

ABSTRACT Against the background that there is an ongoing work to launch a new curriculum for the Swedish compulsory school this article aims to problematize fundamental curriculum issues such as the steering of the school and its knowledge content from a critical discourse analytical perspective. This is done by a parallel reading of the official report that preceded the current curriculum (Lpo 94) and the corresponding official report (SOU 2007:28) for the coming curriculum. The reading shows several differences between the two. In the SOU 1992:94 the continental concept of bildung is used for a profound knowledge discussion. In the SOU 2007:28 knowledge is foremost talked about in terms of evaluation, standardisation and equity. In the article it is argued that the later official report reduces the pedagogical work to a question of quality, understood as the possibility to guarantee equity in both evaluation and the teaching practise. A development away from the knowledge aspirations presented in the SOU 1992:94 that becomes problematic in times where the legitimacy of teachers are questioned. Instead of a being validated out of a well reflected practise the legitimacy presented in SOU 2007:28 derives from the capacity to use standardised tools. Altogether increased governance by the state is asked for in the later official report at the same time as the goal steering system is sharpened which leads to a widened and deepened politicisation of the pedagogical practise at all levels.
