Abstract [en]

The Swedish Parliament and the Government draw up the overall national goals regarding the educational system. Education in Sweden has had a strong element of redistribution in the systems and thus high taxes, which was developed after the Second World War, but had ideological roots in the labor movement back from the late 1800s. One example of the welfare model is that Sweden offers free education from age 6 to 19 and also free school lunches. However, over the last twenty years the welfare model has changed due to globalization and an increase in international financial competition. The Swedish school system's organization and capacity is currently challenged as many newly arrived children and youth arrive in the country. Thus, pressing questions among others are: How are newly arrived children included and integrated into the Swedish school system? What are these childrens’ rights and possibilities of getting an equal education in comparison to Swedish-born children and youth? In documents form the Swedish National Agency for Education it is stated that the top priority is to include all newly arrived pupils into ordinary education as soon as possible, which is in line with a strong discourse of inclusion in the Swedish educational system.  This paper will discuss newcoming and asylum seeking childrens’ and youths’ rights and obligations in the Swedish school system, as well as political tensions in the system expressed by local representatives working within the Swedish educational system. The data come from document studies and interviews in the project, “Mapping of the Newcomers' Reception and Educational Situation, and their Transitions in the Swedish School System” (KAN) located at University West, Sweden.
