Sammanfattning: The following report is aimed to compare how teachers and students experience teaching when it comes to the subject of religion named Religionskunskap 1 in Swedish upper secondary education (high school), and particular teaching about the relationship between science and religion which is to be a part of the subject regarding to the curriculum. The report uses the method of a digital survey and is focusing on whether the two perspectives science and religion are given an equal amount of time during teaching, if the books and other material used during teaching gives an unbiased version of both perspectives, if the teaching regarding science and religion is neutral in total and if teachers and students find it worrying if the teaching regarding science and religions are not unbiased. The findings are to be compared to a theory which is explained with a report written by Masoud Kamali about how the Swedish society separates ”us” from ”them” and how school is a part of the reproducing of hierarchies from the majority society. The findings shows that students in much higher rate than teachers experience that science is given more time in class, and that the students more often refer to the diversity of the Swedish society and therefor the teaching regarding science and religion must be unbiased, even though both teachers and students refer to Sweden as a secular country where science has a very strong position. To fully understand the results further research must be done. Since the findings show that students and teachers experience differ we may have a problem with teachers reproducing hierarchies that separates ”us” from ”them”, and to complete the findings one probably need to use another method than a survey, preferably to sit down and interview teachers for a longer period of time to get to the core of the problem.
