Title En lektion i samhällsintegration – en studie av mångfald och identifiering på en komvuxskola
Author(s) Kalonaityte, Viktorija
Date 2004
English abstract
A lesson in social integration – a study of diversity and identification in a school for adults. The aim of the study is to understand how a municipal adults education school views ethnic diversity within its activity in relation to the organizational identity i.e. the core values of the organization. The rhetoric about the school identity is filled with recurrent references to a "we" that is active, sensitive for the needs of the students. Assimilation intentions and a disciplinarian, authoritarian attitude towards the students, underpin the references that occur in this self-differentiating process. Unity through a collective view on democracy and identification with equality and responsibility as exclusively Swedish values has the impact that people with another ethnic background is seen as not qualified to work as teachers at the school. They are seen as lacking the necessary, "Swedish" values. A broken Swedish, another religion or ethnic background can be used in the recruitment process as the expression of "wrong" values. The advantages with ethnic diversity are connected to language and cultural competence in addition to the applicants' "Swedish competences".

I studien analyseras Komvuxskolans föreställda kärnvärderingar, deras underliggande beståndsdelar och implicita antaganden, samt hur identifieringen med dessa värderingar sker. Vidare förs det en diskussion kring hur denna identifieringsprocess påverkar implementering av etnisk mångfald.
