Abstract [en]

All children in Sweden have the right to good education which is adapted to their abilities. In 2014 parts of the law concerning the school changed. The purpose was to help the municipality and the principal on focus to their responsibility to adjust the school for pupils different ability to learn. In accordance with the prepartoratory work for pupils (Prop 2009/2010:165), pupil health will contribute to creating environments that promote pupils development. It also stresses the schools responsibility for removing obstacles that hinder a student’s learning and development. In my role as a principal, I see that all students who need extra customization don’t always gets it. Colleagues, both in my own municipality and in other parts of the country, also find it difficult to insure to what extent there is need for customization. My purpose was investigate the Principals role in leading the work towards health, for example trough additional adjustments for pupils. The issues was: How is the organization structured? How does the principal work regarding additional adjustments? What can the principal do to ensure that the pupils in need gets it? I have limited the study to focus on adjustments within the classroom. The method used for the survey is telephone interviews and the analyses is based on a system theoretical created by Hoy & Miskell (2008) that consists of multiple parts. In order for the results of an organization to be positive, efforts must be made in areas of structure, culture, political systems and the individual. Structure stands for the formal system, culture for values within the organization, political system for the power of instruments and the individual represents experience and motivation. When I analyzed the answers from the interviews, two areas could be clearly seen related to the culture dimension; the way the teacher sees the student, and that the teachers wants someone else to take care of the students in need for extra adjustments. Other important observations where: Structure - The common denominator was that all units had health team. What emerged was that an activity plan with assignments and responsibilities clearly defined was important in the process, both for staff and the principal. The individual - Individuals have their own experience and carry their own history and value base. The difference in the value base of educators sets the frame for the possibility for an effective learning process. Principal´s Role: The Principal has the overall responsibility to emphasize the importance of a good organization and to implement this.
