Democracy in Upper Secondary School : A study of teacher's attitudes regarding democracy and its practical use in teaching (English)
Abstract [en]

As a teacher today, you have a task to give your students good knowledge and give them great possibilities to reach their goals. But as a teacher, you also have a task to raise your students to be good democratic citizens. 

For this essay, my purpose has been to investigate how three teachers in Social science, about their attitudes regarding democracy and how this is practised in teaching. 

During my study, I have been able to identify that their attitudes to democracy and its practical use, are similar in most ways. For example, they all together share the view, that democracy is an important thing to teach. 

They are practicing democracy in the classroom, for example by letting students influence the way work areas are built and what kind of examinations they would like to have. This way of working in the classroom is based on discussion and by doing so, the students have an opportunity to share their views with their teacher. This is a deliberative perspective, making it possible for students to develop to the democratic citizen. 

This way of teaching, implies that the teacher's attitudes to democracy is based on a form of democracy which is called deliberative democracy. But is deliberative democracy easy to achieve in a complex environment?
