Sammanfattning: This study investigates teachers’ attitudes toward value systems in the context of multicultural education. It highlights the importance of a functioning multi-cultural school as well as that of ongoing work with value systems. The aim of the study is to build on the existing body of research that addresses multicul-tural education in relation to schools’ value systems.Two theories have been used for this study; primarily critical multiculturalism and also the frame factor theory (ramfaktorteorin). A survey of 14 questions was conducted and the data collected was analysed quantitatively. The survey was separated into three sections: substantive questions, questions related to didactics in religious education, and questions about teachers’ attitudes toward value systems. Multicultural education was a theme throughout the survey.The study found that most in-service teachers believe that it is important to actively implement multicultural education and that the basis of a successful multicultural school is the incorporation of a working value system.The study concludes that it is crucial that teachers and students are provided with an understanding of what a functioning multicultural school and a multi-cultural society look like. Without this understanding there will continue to be a gap in society that has the potential to manifest itself as an “us and them” mentality. More work around value systems as well as more professional de-velopment for in-service teachers around multicultural education is essential, as the study revealed a lack of understanding and/or disinterest from some in-service teachers.
