Implementing Lvux12 in Swedish for Immigrants (SFI) : A case study based in Linköping (English)
This essay investigates how the new school curriculum, Lvux12, have been implemented in Linköping, with focus on the education Swedish for Immigrants (SFI). A lot of criticisms have been aimed at the SFI educations around the country and this is partly what the reform is based on, to be able to improve the education to the better. Despite this reform, criticisms are still being heard, so is the implementation of the reform really a success and has it been any changes?
In this essay there are mainly two analytical perspectives being used; bottom-up and top-down. Based on these, the empirical materials collected through interviews are analyzed in comparison with already existing publications about the implementation process.
The focus of the essay is concentrated to the information process, the adaptation level at micro level relative the directive from macro level, and also implementation barriers. It proves that there are some problems during the information process which did not execute the way described in the publications prior to the implementation. It has also emerged implementation barriers related to this since the information didn’t reach through, probably due to poor structure or due to pure reluctance. One big problem is the lack of follow-up and evaluation, both at local and national level.
Even if it has been possible to enforce many adaptations and it has been possible to work with the reform from the micro level, it is still missing resources and some organizational support from further progress.
The question whether the implementation has been a success or not is complex and a hard one to answer. There are many aspects to consider and different results points in different directions. Over all, the conclusion has to be that the implementation is a success, although with several possibilities for improvement.
The question still has many question marks left and it is both relevant and important to continue to investigate the subject to reach appropriate measures. A lot is working well, but it can always get better and one has never learnt enough.
