Title A Monster of Economization?
Author Ideland, Malin
Date 2016
English abstract
I’ve spent a lot of time the last months trying to map what I have named the school’s external actor-network; companies offering to help Swedish schools with a line of experienced problems such as decreasing results in large-scale assessments, increasing segregation between schools and an educational system not preparing for a future job market. The help is said to be flexible and customized to the specific school and it often comes in the shape of coaching, digitalization or entrepreneurial learning. Always based in contemporary educational research such as John Hattie’s work, often offered by persons claiming to have many years of experience of Swedish educational system and now trying to help on a more general level through a private solution. Private companies solving the problems of public schools – is this a sign of a monster of economization terrorizing educational settings today? Or is there a monster of economization? Might it even be a savior in a time of a school that seems not to fulfill its obligations?
