Learning to swim, how does it work? : A study of school staff and how they adept to girls who lives in honour based culture which could develop in a social problem. (English)
Abstract [en]

In this study we will examine how the staff at schools has adapted the teaching environment for girls living in culture of honour when they are participating in the obligatorily PE lessons including swimming. The idea with this essay is not to explain or value cultures or religions but focus on problems where the Swedish law gets in conflict with the culture of honour. The methodology employed was qualitative semi structured interviews with the staff in four different schools and three different municipalities. We have used system theory and KASAM and also earlier research to analyse the result. Our study showed us that the staff describes that the families who adept the culture of honour take care of their children, but it prevents the person to develop at an individual liberal level. The staff notices the attributes belonging to this culture but the health service at school don’t connect this with the possibility of negative consequences for those girls. That means the health service at school don’t participate to make the teaching environment safer. The PE-teacher is the one who takes care of the situation that occurs and has to handle with it because they don’t send it further up to the school health service. The result is that the PE-teacher and the students won’t get any support in a social perspective. The swim lessons are sex neutral in its character and that leaves the girls to adapt to this instead of the opposite. The school staffs opinion is that there is a two way dialogue with the parents though our study shows however that contacts with the parents are more like one way dialogue information stream. Our opinion is that school health service should work more with prevention and inform the other professions at school about signs they have to observe and be aware of.
