Abstract [en]

Compared to many other countries in the world school-age educare is widely recognized and valued in Sweden. However, although its widely spreading, knowledge gained from research is scarce. The school-age educare is valuable for children, but as such rather taken for granted. In what way the recent cutbacks of the Swedish school-age educare system have affected the educational standards and equality is not carefully scrutinized. Keeping in mind that extended education is the objective of schoolage educare centres according to the National Curriculum, the question to be asked is why knowledge and evaluations not has been required from politicians and local authorities concerning knowledge directed towards this educational practice. The aim of this paper is to give a background as well as the current status of the Swedish government´s policies on the activity in schoolage educare in Sweden. The empirical material is gained through a document analysis of official documents. The main contribution from the study is to strengthen the field of research, since this field can be considered as new and insufficiently researched. From the expected findings of the analyses of the documents I intend to reflect upon the probable backgrounds to why this field is taken for granted, why it is considered as valuable and possible reasons to why this area not is carefully researched. This research is also intended as a much-needed contribution to the development of this emerging field of research in the Nordic countries. The purpose of the study is to contribute with essential arguments for supporting the development of the school-age educare activities in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland.
