The essay is based on a poststructrualistic discursive perspective and the field is studied as a policy. The analysis is carried through with a method for policy analysis called ”What’s the problem represented to be?”, developed by the political scientist Carol Bacchi. The method is based on identifying and scrutinizing problem representations as a strategy for examining the discursive meanings that the policy implies. The method analysis and the theoretical framework conjointly contributes to fulfilling the purpose of the essay.
Three problem representations of the citizen in the framing of the pupil are identified in the analysis. They are the citizen as a master of knowledge, the citizen as a bearer of value and the citizen as categorized. Through the scrutinizing of these problem representations, an understanding of the representations and (re)productions in the specific framework is given shape. (Less)
