This essay has an aim to map out the discourses in the debate around local self government and national equivalence, which are both essential democratic values. The essay is delimited to the area of the comprehensive school. Interviews have been made with key persons in different positions in a selected municipality. I also use material that has been written in the context of Ansvarskommittén. The material is analysed using an integrated discourse analysis. The analysis is also related to a theoretical discussion of the conceptions of national equivalence, self government and democratic values. The discourse in the context of Ansvarskommittén is mixed and the texts build on more traditional definitions of the conception of national equivalence as well as new definitions, which indicates a discursive shift. In the selected municipality the national equivalence is strongly emphasized. There seem to be a tendency that people in positions more close to the educational sector are more worried about that the educational issues might bee less prioritized if the municipalities are given more power.
