Abstract
Compulsory school can appear to be uniform because it is common.

Compulsory school can appear to be uniform because it is common. Its commonness has however more to do with compulsory school attendance than with the fact that all the pupils utilizes education of equal value. Beyond social differences compulsory school creates differences among the pupils just because they are kept in school.

In this article three reasons for beeing in school are identified: coercion, educational dependence and the will to know. These reasons become visible in three categories of pupils: the forced pupil, the one who is dependent on education and the pupil that has a thirst for knowledge. Further in three roles played by teachers: the warder, the educator and the ”knowledger”. Finally in three institutional school-characters: prison, market and free studies.

The article also comments on current trends in the swedish compulsory school development. In this coercion, educational dependence as well as the will to know plays important roles. At the same time as the prison- and marketcharacters is developing in a complementary way, the free studies are used to recapture the meaning of knowledge in compulsory school. (Less)
