Challenging Traditions?: Pupils in Need of Special Support in Swedish Independent Schools
2012 (English)In: Nordic Studies in Education, Vol. 32, no 4, p. 262-280Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article presents the general situation for pupils in need of special support (PNSS) within the Swedish independent compulsory schools. The analysis is based upon a survey of all independent schools in Sweden. Results show that the amount of PNSS is lower in independent schools than in municipal schools and that a deficit perspective seems to be common regarding explanations of school problems. There is, however, great diversity among the schools. Conclusions are that the challenge of independent schools to the traditional way of conceiving education, regarding school choice, seems to be more effective less for some other groups of pupils than for PNSS and that there are few signs that independent schools challenge traditions in work with PNSS in municipal schools.
