Abstract [en]

During the hundred years that followed the establishment of the common school 1842, the Swedish mass education went through an unparalleled development. The number of students doubled from 270 000 1850 to 605 000 1950. At the same time the number of teachers rose from 3 500 to 27 500. As a result, the costs of the common school increased dramatically. Between 1874 and 1942 the expenditures increased from 14 to 268 millions of kronor, counted in the money value of 1942.

 

To finance a school system involves balancing demands for higher quality of education with ambitions to keep check of already high costs. It is also a question of choosing between different forms of grants and objects (teacher salaries, school books, schoolhouses etc.). How such decisions were made, and what consequences they had for the education in the common schools, are the central questions of this project.
