Abstract [en]

Abstract This article presents comparisons concerned with secondary school science teachers’ and their students’

beliefs about science and technology and also what science content secondary science teachers

teach and what their students want to learn. Student data are part of the Relevance of Science Education

(ROSE) study and the teacher data are part of an extensive study carried out only in Sweden. The

results indicate that both secondary science teachers and their students are optimistic about science

and technology as essential parts of societal development. When content from these knowledge fields

is considered for instruction, significant disparities exist between what teachers teach and what their

students want to learn. Additional results concerning the secondary science teachers’ beliefs, ‘out-ofschool

experiences’, ‘Science Technology and Society’ (STS) approaches and ‘inquiry-based instruction’

are pointed out as important for the development of science instruction in secondary schools. The

results are discussed in the contexts of students’ voices and teachers’ beliefs.
