Abstract [en]

The aim of this substudy is to identify factors important for the three schools in the school improvement project “The world's best regional education system” in their strive for school development and increased goal achievement. The project in its total is a school improvement and a research project in three schools in Jämtlands and Västernorrlands counties. These counties have lower educational results and school achievements compared to other parts in Sweden and have a relatively large proportion of out-migration of well-educated from the region. The low results for this regions and attempt to improve schools to improve well-educated workforce was the starting point for this project and its promoters.

 

First a presentation of the total projects goal and purposes is provided in the forthcoming paper, that is, the schools total leadership, goal achievement and capacities for school improvement. To contextualize the findings in the substudy a theoretical frame involving a general overview of research on school improvement, total leadership and goal achievement is constructed. This is followed by a descriptive analysis of the data. The data is based on the project applications from the three selected schools and initial interviews with teachers and principals from these schools in the project. Finally a summary and discussion of the outcomes of the review are presented and the implications for further research and practice are considered. Expected results, are although the applications were very different, the content of the answers are diverse and reflects the three schools special internal work.

 

For Nordic educational research this is highly relevant for the consciousness of what’s the schools own factors for working with school improvement.
