Lärare utan frihet by Johan Wennström

By Johan Wennström

Den svenska skolan har stora challenge med fallande kunskapsresultat - och många hoppas att lärarna ska vända trenden. Det är dock svårt när lärarkåren så länge har misshandlats och nedvärderats, Såväl vänstern som högern har i decennier underminerat lärares yrkesstolthet och självständighet. När lärare inte tillåts vara fria styrs skolan efter kontroversiella näringslivsprinciper, som i utbildningssystemet resulterat i mäthysteri och överdrivna dokumentationskrav. Författaren Johan Wennström har med läsaren på en spännande resa från 1960-talet, över 70-tal och 80-tal och fram until eventually dagens skola. Han visar på detaljnivå hur olika politiska och idémässiga tankeriktningar fått avgörande inflytande över lärarna och i hög utsträckning bär skulden för skolans haveri. I Lärare utan frihet visar han på ett övertygande sätt hur dessa tankeriktningar layout dagens skola - och ansvarar för resultaten.

Johan Wennström är samhällsvetare och författare och har påbörjat en forskarutbildning i statsvetenskap hösten 2014.
