'That's not what I am': teacher reflections on purpose, practice and professionalism in the Swedish free school system

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

In this article, four teachers reflect on what it means to work in a for-profit free school in Sweden. These narratives corroborate concerns about educational inequity and academic standards within the free school system. Equally, they reveal how teachers struggle to negotiate a professional identity within a competitive school market where social ideals and institutional practices often conflict.
