    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish educational reforms in the beginning of the 1990s, introducing a public-funded voucher system, free school choice and the right to run schools as commercial enterprises, had an important impact on upper secondary education. The Stockholm region, the most populous in Sweden, offered favourable conditions for the growth of a previously non-existent educational market. A massive expansion of independent schools took place, managed primarily by larger companies, along with the extensive marketing of profiled study programmes and the import of management models from the private sector. In 2011 alone, schools competed for 75 000 pupils representing an annual economic value of approximately 8.5 billion SEK.

    Covering the period 1988 to 2011, this thesis analyses the relationship between the educational market and upper secondary education as a social field structured by the educational strategies of social groups. Building on Bourdieu’s relational sociology, the study combines quantitative and qualitative methods, using correspondence analysis as a major analytical tool.

    While free school choice and the voucher system established a supply-demand relationship between schools and families and pupils, the analysis shows that the market has submitted to the same forces that structure the field of upper secondary education within which it unfolds, primarily the volume and composition of symbolic and other assets that students, families and schools possess. In fact, the social structure of the field of upper secondary education in Stockholm remains remarkably stable over time, opposing on the one hand female and male dominated education and on the other hand education with high social and scholarly recruitment to that with low. Euclidean clustering analysis unveils a complex social structure reflecting how the increasingly differentiated educational supply has adapted to the needs of various social groups. Elite schools, market-oriented schools and market-exposed schools develop different strategies in the battle over pupils. Competing amongst themselves for pupils rich in inherited and acquired capital, the elite schools withdraw from the openly market-oriented approach that characterises the other type of schools and instead opt for more subtle, long-term strategies for building up trust from their audience, involving investments in staff and other institutional assets.

    School Choice in Ethnically and Socioeconomically Heterogeneous Residential Areas2018In: Sociologisk forskning, ISSN 0038-0342, Vol. 55, no 1, p. 23-52Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how young peoples 'strategies when choosing upper secondary education are marked by the segregation and marketization of education. Research is limited to five municipalities in southern Stockholm that are characterized by ethnically and socioeconomically heterogeneous residential areas. It is argued that the school choice of all pupils at upper secondary level in this region constitutes a socio-geographical space in which the school market is embedded and operates. This space is explored by means of specific multiple correspondence analyses (specific MCA). Using individual census data on all students in the designated municipalities from 2008, the differences between 4 421 pupils are investigated as regards their parents' education, income, occupation, services, and national origin, as well as the pupils' academic merits from comprehensive school. The analysis reveals that, despite a 'free' school choice and substantial geographical mobility, pupils' choices are heavily restricted by local social and demographic conditions, not the least those connected to their acquired and inherited assets.

    School competition and social stratification in the deregulated upper secondary school market in Stockholm2018In: British Journal of Sociology of Education, ISSN 0142-5692, E-ISSN 1465-3346, Vol. 39, no 6, p. 891-907Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on the case of upper secondary education in Stockholm, thisarticle analyses school-based responses to a superimposed marketand how this is related to social stratification. Furthermore, schools’and pupils’ encounters with the market are analysed in relation toBourdieu’s concepts of field, capital and strategy. Methodologically,the quantitative method of correspondence analysis is combinedwith semi-structured interviews with senior administrative officersand principals. Analysis shows how the overarching structure ofthis particular field – a historically pre-existing social order of uppersecondary education in Stockholm – is related to the complex set ofstrategies that schools develop in the school market. Schools locatedat the elite pole of the field, serving the educational needs of a smallminority of either the wealthy or the culturally rich upper middleclass, are less affected by marketization. In the most populous socialmid-tier of the field, schools are more likely to turn education into amass-produced commodity, while schools at the socially dominatedpole, without a competitive product, are more exposed to the market’sstratifying impact.

    School Choice in Ethnically and Socioeconomically Heterogeneous Residential Areas

    This article explores how young peoples' strategies when choosing upper secondary education are marked by the segregation and marketization of education.

    Public schools’ market strategies2019In: Neoliberalism and market forces in education: lessons from Sweden / [ed] Magnus Dahlstedt & Andreas Fejes, London: Routledge, 2019, 1, p. 15-32Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish school reforms in the early 1990s channeled all public funding for basic and secondaryeducation into vouchers that families and pupils could use for making their own choice of school. Parallelto this, private schools were allowed, competing with municipality owned schools for pupils and thefunding these vouchers represent. The reforms transformed education into a market where pupilscompete for entry into schools and schools compete for pupils. This transformation profoundly changedthe conditions for how municipalities handled their political responsibility to provide education of ‘equalquality’. In this paper, we examine the survival strategies that local school authorities employed underthe pressure of increased competition, deregulation and marketization. Our analysis is based oninterviews with senior school officials and school principals in the less wealthy southern municipalitiesofStockholm County and is underpinned by statistical data originating from Statistics Sweden. The studyshows that public school authorities were forced to adapt to a market over which they had limited control.The market reforms provided the municipalities with a contradictory role as both wardens of traditionalvalues of civic responsibility and defenders of the new school competition. This aligns with previousresearch that point to a gradual transformation of the public sector, the emphasis shifting from egalitarianand civic responsibility to producing education as a civic commodity.Auctioning out educationDiana Holmqvist1

    Tvära möten: om utbildning och kritiskt lärande2011Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this first Södertörn Studies in Education research volume, a collection of original, inter-communicating, and partly intersecting analyses of education and learning by Södertörn scholars is, for the first time, presented in one binding. The book is organised in three overall themes: liberal education, interculturality, and steering. New scholarly ground is opened up in the fields of linguistic, ideational, social, ethnographical, systemic, spatial, political, and organisational studies, bringing us new knowledge as well as showing the strength and width of educational studies at Södertörn University. We are confident that it will be put to good use by researchers in the field and students alike.
