Abstract english

Education as a social right has been gaining strong prominence in the Nordic countries transition towards the post-industrial society. I focused the Swedish educational system.

The study finds that the right to education turned into a moral duty to be an enlightened citizen. The interviewees’ stigmatize vocational programmes and encourage pupils to choose ‘right’ meaning school-based education. Authorities refuse to provide jobs which not require upper secondary school, even when unskilled jobs are available and regardless of the youngster’s preferences and abilities.

While implement social rights to combat school dropouts, unemployment and social exclusion, officials generate such social risks that they have the responsibility for overcoming.
