Abstract [en]

An expanded focus on discipline and disorder classrooms

In Sweden, we have over the last 15 years experienced a heightened concern with discipline, especially among politicians and debaters, who argue that problem with discipline has decreased in Swedish classrooms. Even so, the PISA results focusing on discipline in classrooms between 2000 and 2009 reported in some years (OECD, 2011, 2013) the opposite trend towards more orderly classrooms. According to that report, Sweden is one of the countries with more than 10 percentage points of improvement, based on students' reports of calm classrooms. From that, the report concludes:"By 2009, the quality of student-teacher relations was even better"(OECD, 2011, p. 3). Secondly, Swedish educational researchers have overthe last 10 years (cf. Bartholdsson, 2007; Granath, 2008; Wester, 2008;Samuelsson, 2008; Landahl, 2009; Karlberg, 2011) studied what happens in classrooms and how teachers' think about and handle disturbances and discipline. Thirdly, Sweden during 2010 passed a new Educational Act (Utbildningsdepartementet, 2010:800) with expanded disciplinary sanctions for teachers to use. With the passing of that act teachers and schools gained the possibility of suspending a student for three weeks, as well as moving a student to another school as a response to the disorder, troublesome behaviour or disrespect they have had to tolerate in the classroom. In light of the above mentioned, the aim of this study is to describe and understand the ways in which teachers have experienced students' troublesome behaviour during lessons.
