A Critique of the STEM Pipeline: Young People's Identities in Sweden and Science Education Policy
Mendick, Heather; Berge, Maria; Danielsson, Anna
British Journal of Educational Studies, v65 n4 p481-497 2017
In this article, we develop critiques of the pipeline model which dominates Western science education policy, using discourse analysis of interviews with two Swedish young women focused on "identity work". We argue that it is important to unpack the ways that the pipeline model fails to engage with intersections of gender, ethnicity, social class and nationality, and their impact on science and with debates about science as elitist and implicated in neoliberalism.
