School policies, gender-sex-sexuality and ethno-cultural re-production in Sweden, Canada and Germany

Schmitt, Irina LU (2012) In International Handbook of Migration, Minorities and Education. Understanding Cultural and Social Differences in Processes of Learning p.365-382
Abstract
I analyze the role of gender-sex-sexuality in school

policies in Sweden; Canada; and Germany. Policies concerning young people’s negotiations of gender-sex-sexuality in schools draw on specific understandings of societal belonging and cohesion.

Invariably such policies are part of national discourses regarding

values and norms of gender and relationships; informed by concepts

of ethnicized belonging. Furthermore; the analysis of school policy

texts allows insights into conceptualizations of young people

and their societal role in the context of ongoing neo-liberal reconfigurations of schools and societies.
