Comparing teachers´ autonomy in Finland and Norway: Discussing conditions for critical education

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the report "Teachers Matter" (2005) the OECD recommends a combination of a thorough control and testing of teachers´ work, together with economic incentives following achieved targets (Haugen 2010). In the report the OECD puts forward an instrumental vision of teachers´ role in education (Haugen, 2010). Through the ranking in the PISA investigations, Finland has become the "star" in the educational field, while Norway scores in the middle. In this paper the author aims to analyze and compare Finish and Norwegian teachers´ autonomy from the state. There are different forms of governing which can be categorized as rules/frames, goals, or values (Aasen, 2007). How the government steers can be described as: legal steering tools, financial steering tools, informative steering tools and evaluation (Aasen, 2007). The comparison of teachers´ autonomy from the state will be based on analysis of central policy documents in relation to these categories. The analysis will form basis for discussing national responses to global education policies from the OECD. A central focal point will be on conditions for critical education in the two countries.
