The Quality Framework in Norway
Mandt, Gunnar
Intercultural Education, v19 n2 p177-182 Apr 2008
The quality framework summarises and elaborates on the provisions in the Education Act and its regulations, including the National Curriculum, and must be considered in light of the legislation and regulations. The quality framework helps to clarify the responsibilities the school owners (the local and county administration authorities in Norwegian public schools) have in providing education pursuant to the legislation and regulations and the principles of human rights, and adapted to local and individual aptitudes, expectations and needs. The quality framework is an integral part of the foundation on which the quality of primary and secondary education and training can be further developed and on which the school and apprenticeship-training enterprise can be systematically assessed. The comprehensive school for all shall be based on and address the diversity of the pupils' backgrounds and aptitudes. The education shall promote the versatile development of the pupils and their knowledge and skills. The comprehensive school shall have ambitions on behalf of the pupils, and give them challenges and goals to strive for. The school and apprenticeship-training enterprise must also take the different aptitudes and progression rates of pupils into consideration so each and every pupil can experience the joy of mastering and reaching his or her goals. Together with the school administration and the apprenticeship-training enterprise's management, teachers and instructors shall promote a good learning environment for all. (Contains 1 note.)
