Kunskaper om och attityder till dagens syomål: intervjuer med elever och skolpersonal
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Education.
1985 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande rapport är att kartlägga kunskaper om och attityder till dagens syomål hos personer, som på olika sätt är inblandade i syoverksamheten på grund- och gymnasieskola. Skolstyrelseordförande, skolledare, lärare, syofunktionärer och elever i 16 kommuner har intervjuats utifrån ett strukturerat formulär med helt öppna frågor. Bland resultaten kan nämnas att det i huvudsak är enbart syofunktionärerna som känner till syons officiella målsättning. Innehållet i målanvisningarna värderas dessutom på olika sätt. Syofunktionärer värderar det som kallats medvetandegörande funktion högst, till skillnad från övriga, som ger uttryck för att syons viktigaste funktion är informativ. I den avslutande diskussionen kommenteras några av de viktigaste resultaten samt diskuteras metodiska erfarenheter och konsekvenser för det fortsatta utvärderingsarbetet.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this report is to make a survey of knowledge and attitudes regarding current objectives of educational and vocational guidance among people who in various ways are concerned with these activities in the 9-year compulsory comprehensive and the integrated upper secondary schools. The chairmen of the local education authorities, headmasters, teachers, educational and vocational counsellors, and pupils in 16 municipalities have been interviewed with the aid of a structured questionnaire with open questions. It can be mentioned as an example of the results that it is on the whole only the educational and vocational counsellors who are aware of the official aim of educational and vocational guidance. The content of the descriptions of aims are, moreover, evaluated in various ways. Educational and vocational counsellors consider the function o* encouraging awareness in the pupils to be the most important one whereas the others maintain that the most important function of educational and vocational guidance is the informative one. Some of the most important results will be commented on in the concluding discussion as well as methodical findings and consequences for the continued evaluation work.

Abstract [en]

This report is a summary and a discussion of several studies, that havebeen carried out within the SYO-project (syo=educational and vocationalguidance). The SYO-project, financed by the National Board of Education,has two major sources of information concerning the description andanalyses of (1) the content of syo and (2) different persons' conceptionsand notions of education, work, and choice of education and profession.The aim of this work is to investigate pupils in grade 7-9 regardingtheir actual choices and the particular conditions, that could influencethose choices e.g. the importance of the family and the syo. In theframework for conducting this study, some assumptions are made aboutthe role of school and syo. The pupils' choices and the conditions underwhich they occur, are examined from a societal, educational andindividual perspective. Furthermore, a model is developed to illustratehow pupils' conceptions and notions are formed. Both extensive andintensive studies have been executed, using parents, pupils, teachers andcounsellors. The data have been collected primarily from individualinterviews and questionnaires. The results have been published in sevenreports, nos. 4-10 in Pedagogiska rapporter/Educational reports.Department of Education, University of Umeå (in Swedish). The resultsdemonstrate, that the pupils choices of education and profession arestrongly related to sex and social class. Only their choices of educationseem to be stable. However, when they change, the differences betweensex and social class tend to be even larger. The influences from parentsand school coincides so as to support the pupils* conceptions and notionsof education, work, and educational and vocational choices, which arebased on an individual perspective. In contrast, there can also be a breakin the ideological transmission, such that, for example, the pupils1conceptions of work may reflect more of the parents' influences thanthe schools1. Different conditions of importance for the work of syo, inaccordance with official goals, are not fulfilled. Thus, the integrationof syo does not exist. For example, the number of pupils seems too largeand the expectations of teachers and other persons in the school,concerning syo, are quite different from those of the counsellors. Finally,a few limitations and the principal results of the work are discussedalong with suggestions for further research. The results concern, interalia, the socially based differences in knowledge between parents andpupils. These differences mean, in essence, that a basic condition forrational choice is not fulfilled. Furthermore, the role of syo as a sortingmechanism in the process of social reproduction is deemphasized. Instead,its legitimizing function appears as more important.
