Abstract [en]

This thematic chapter analyses both similarities and differences between the political cultures of the participating Nordic countries. It has been demonstrated that a country’s specific political culture has a great impact on the way its schooling system is organised. This view was centred on national cultures. In the Nordic countries, with their traditions of decentralised systems, many of the most important decision are taken by the municipal systems. Therefore this chapter seeks to apply the concepts of national political culture to the local municipal level. The chapter aims to explore the differences between the Nordic countries’ schooling systems through the lens of how different political cultures influence the organisation of the national school systems and draw them in different directions.
