Implementing ”The equality treatment plan” in The school environment : - Does the willingness, knowledge and understanding exist (English)
The main purpose of this paper is to examine how the regulatory environment of ”equality plans" are implemented at the municipal level of decision making in the school environment - in terms of both local politicians, school structures and management by teachers.
The paper will present how the implementation theory works in practice by examining two high schools in the Municipality of Norrkoping and see what differences exist in the implementation process of "equality plans" in schools with a variety of high and relatively low immigrant background among students.
We will present how it seems from different perspectives. Are teachers today controlled by public professional ethics or personal reasons, where those street level bureaucrats mainly act on feeling depending on the case? And how might this affect the law? Do they in fact understand, or have the knowledge and the willingness to implement?
In our study, we are using a comparative case study method with an interview guide. A comparison between the two school´s equality plan have been analyzed where we have developed key differences and similarities that we recognized regarding the subject.
The results of the study demonstrate that the context is very crucial to addressing these issues. By an apparent context that becomes more pronounced it forces the schools to think more strategically and behave more in a long term counterproductive way. We could also see that in the school environment where there are a higher proportion of immigrants induces an increased pressure to professionalism among teachers.
We therefore conclude that the implementation process is likely to be more successful if it has a strong professionalization among officials. This will lead to a greater understanding, deeper knowledge and willingness to implement the law.
