Beskrivning av projektet
Even though we don't know for sure what the future holds, the intention of education is always on the future. In globalising society where future has become more difficult to foresee, national and international policy actors have started to take over the future by projecting the future school. This comparative research project aims to understand the future school -education policy in the Nordic context by mapping and analysing the main documents used in future school reports and by comparing future prospect in two different time points (1998 and 2017). In addition, the study explores how new forms of school development such as school development networks, face future-related expectations in different levels of school administration. The research material consists of political documents and expert interviews collected from five Nordic countries (Iceland, Norway and Sweden, Finland, Denmark).
