Similar Situations?: Special Needs in Different Groups of Independent Schools
2014 (English)In: SCANDINAVIAN JOURNAL OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH, Vol. 59, no 4, p. 377-394Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This study explores differences between different groups of Swedish independent schools’ work with pupils in need of special support (PNSS). Data comes from a total population study of independent schools. Data is analyzed using six categories of profile that may affect the special educational values at the schools, and therefore the situation for PNSS. Additionally, the data is analyzed with regard to the school ownership structure. Results show that diagnosis is important for receiving support, despite contrary legislative intentions. The groups differ regarding proportions of PNSS (12-100%), incidence of refusals of admission (8-40%), and in the way they explain problems and organize support. Generally, there is little challenge to a deficit perspective in views on school difficulties and the organization of support; market rationality may be a contributing factor. There are more differences between educational profiles of schools than there are between types of school ownership.
