Somali-Swedes' reasons for choosing a Muslim-profiled school - Recognition and educational ambitions as important influential factors
2017 (English)In: Journal of School Choice, ISSN 1558-2159, Vol. 11Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article analyzes choice strategies among a group of Somali-Swedes at a Muslim-profiled compulsory school. In the Swedish debate these schools are alleged to be divisive, with values incompatible with the goals of Swedish schools. The study explores whether there are other reasons behind school choice than the school’s faith profile, concluding that for the group in question, it is also important to find a school in accordance with high educational ambitions and respect for rather than discrimination toward their faith, culture, and skin color.
