Lacking structures of communication for teachers in Sweden, a focus group study

Schad, Elinor LU (2019) In Lund Psychological Reports
Abstract
In light of the changing circumstances for teaching, teachers’ views on organizational communication processes were explored. Empirically, this paper is based on five semi-structured focus groups, each interviewed on two occasions. In total, 44 primary and lower secondary-school teachers working in one municipality in Sweden participated. The interviews were framed by a pre-survey concerning demographic data and a post-survey collecting data on the teachers’ assessment of the group climate. In the analysis, four themes that illustrate aspects of teachers’ perceptions and experiences of workplace communication were identified. The findings point to a lack of adequate and comprehensive structures for organizational communication.
