The compulsory school attendance in Sweden means that all children are obligated to go to school. This makes great demands on those who work in the school, especially the teachers. Schools are complex units. In school, teachers face all kinds of ethical dilemmas on a daily basis. The aim of the study is to enlighten how different teachers would act differently, if they were facing the same dilemma in the PE-lessons and why this knowledge is important to our profession.


The data was collected through interviews to make a qualitative research. The purpose of this study was to follow four PE-teachers reasoning about ethical dilemmas. Through three pre-set dilemmas the teachers were supposed to discuss how they, hypothetical, would act if they were facing them.


The result showed that there are no agreements between the teachers in how they think they would have act in the pre-set dilemmas. The choice of act affects on both the school as an organization and of teachers as persons. Accordingly, the choice of act depends on how the school has arranged the teaching, what resources the school has and how far the teachers think their professions reach. This study also shows that there are no certain answers to how teachers should act if they were facing the pre-set dilemmas. Because of this, they teachers’ whishes more concrete guidelines, more education in the subject and in conflict solvation to be prepared to face dilemmas regarding PE-lessons in our schools.


This study has enlightened the difficulties regarding ethical dilemmas that teachers faces in school. The study has also pioneered for further research in different areas considering ethical dilemmas in schools.
