Abstract

As Sweden becomes more and more multicultural, the schools should be a part of that development.

This essay will study the Swedish policy documents for the school system and see if they are up to date so that the pedagogues are able to handle situations such as cultural conflicts that can happen in a school environment. The issue is studied in a youth recreation center at Norra Fäladen in Lund by interviewing pedagogues and comparing their view with the policy documents. The world is changing, the society is modernizing and it’s time for the policy documents to get updated and appropriate for the world that we live in. (Less)
