After Decentralization: Delimitations and Possibilities within New Fields
Wahlstrom, Ninni
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v40 n6 p725-742 Dec 2008
The shift from a centralized to a decentralized school system can be seen as a solution to an uncertain problem. Through analysing the displacements in the concept of equivalence within Sweden's decentralized school system, this study illustrates how the meaning of the concept of equivalence shifts over time, from a more collective target achievement for the educational system as a whole to a more individually interpreted goal-fulfilment.
