Livskunskap - Ett formande av den ideala eleven?
Abstract (Summary)In this study the part of the school in the governing of the students will be reviewed, especially from, the Knowledge of Life. In some schools in Sweden there has been a subject called: the Knowledge of Life for some years. It was the schools which came up with the idea and they took the initiative, which is why it is called a bottom-up movement. The platform for our study has been the textbooks for the subject Knowledge of Life, and we have chosen to work mainly with a textbook called Livsviktigt. Knowledge of Life has no national syllabus, and therefore the content of the course and the general concept may vary. In our study we have focused on the student’s inner emotional development as a reason for processes of socialisation. The questions have been what kind of a student the schools want to create with the Knowledge of Life and what the reasons might be. There are two different kinds of ambitions colliding in this governing project: It is the ambition of the individual growth of the student with a parallel of constructing of the model student as a well-behaved, positive and accommodating student. This is based on a generally accepted normality.
