De estetiska ämnenas utveckling och betydelse under 2010-talet. : En kritisk diskursanalys av den offentliga debatten om de estetiska ämnenas positionering och betydelse efter gymnasiereformen 2011.
Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to examine how the discourses about the position of the aesthetic subjects in the Swedish Education Policy are formed and presented in media texts. As the media today has a great power in society, is an arena for politicians to reach out, media players to raise current issues and the public to engage in opinion formation, this study is done through an analysis of media texts from the years between 2011-2018. In 2011 there was a new curriculum for the Upper Secondary School in Sweden, named GY11.One change was that there were no compulsory aesthetic subjects more, a decision based on the international PISA- measurements, where mathematics, science, reading ability and problem solving are the prioritizes school subjects. During the past time since 2011 another change also has been notices in a part of the Swedish school system: a sharp decline in applications to the undergraduate art schools, focused image and shape. Both these changes in the Swedish school development is a step in the same direction. Removing Estetisk verksamhet in GY11 for other subjects, is a concrete measure due to low results in PISA- measurements in Swedish school students. The decline in applications to preparatory art schools has increased at the same rate as NPM has gained more space in the Swedish education system. There, priority is given to measurable documentable knowledge over those that cannot be measured and documented in the same way, to which the aesthetic competencies belong. The theoretical starting points in the research are the social constructionism. The study is a critical discourse analysis according to Norman Fairclough’s tree-step method with the dimensions text, interaction and context. The selection consists of publishes texts from the selected time period, which have been divided into three media communication groups: Rulers and politicians, media actors and the public.
