Abstract [en]

Great expectations lay upon school, not only as an institution for education but also as an arena for equity, health and democratic values (Löf, forthcoming). The aim of this paper is to explore how normality’s on ‘good friendship’ are constructed in the setting of a new school subject called Life Competence Education (Sw Livskunskap). The study draws upon ethnographic data and video recordings from two compulsory schools in Malmö. Tentative findings are: a ‘good friend’ can express feelings, opinions and needs. Also, forgiveness and the admitting of mistakes are central in a “good friendship”. The way children are trained in values and companionship promotes a new discourse on children as “becoming beings”, which will be further developed in this presentation.
