"That's Not What I Am": Teacher Reflections on Purpose, Practice and Professionalism in the Swedish Free School System
Milner, Alison
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v57 n2 p179-190 2015
In this article, four teachers reflect on what it means to work in a for-profit free school in Sweden. These narratives corroborate concerns about educational inequity and academic standards within the free school system. Equally, they reveal how teachers struggle to negotiate a professional identity within a competitive school market where social ideals and institutional practices often conflict.
