Abstract [en]

In this article Foucault’s theoretical concept of governmentality is used to scrutinise the ways in which the ideal pupil is constructed, governed and positioned in and through teacher training in Sweden. The analysis focuses on the construction of subject positions as well as governing 10 technologies and techniques operating in the shaping of the ‘ideal’ pupil. The result shows how teacher training plays an active role in the construction of the entrepreneurial subject, a discursive subject position that constitutes a solution in Sweden’s aim of being competitive in the international education market.
