Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate the attitude of teachers regarding including democratic behaviour when grading students in social science. The purpose is also to investigate whether the teachers consider there to be a conflict between the right of freedom of speech and the democratic values that the school is supposed to make sure the students have when they graduate. The study also investigates the problems political decisions encounters when going from theory to reality.

The theory of Ulf Petäjä on why the freedom of speechs is important, Robert Dahls theory about the democratic process and Anders Sannerstedts theory about converting political decisions to reality is what this study is based on.

The study was carried out at three different schools; Teleborg Centrum, Växjö, Dackeskolan, Tingsryd and Centralskolan, Virserum ranging from the spring of 2006 and the spring of 2007. The method used except from litterature studies was interviews with active teachers.

This study shows that teachers don’t think it’s acceptable to grade students based on their political ideology. It also shows that most teachers doen’t consider there to be a dilemma between the shools democratic values and the freedom of speech. What goes on in the class room seems to be shaped more by the local school standards and the teachers themselves than by the political documents that the education is supposed to be based on.
