Lapsen arviointi: Hyväksyttävän subjektiviteetin rajat ja saksalaisen kriittisen teorian kokeilu

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til rapportForskning


In Danish kindergartens and schools children are increasingly assessed and evaluated. Not only academic skills are scrutinized but also the children's personalities and behaviour. This is allegedly done for their own good - to protect the children from unbeneficial development or lack of development. However, such assessment practices can be viewed as ideological operations that guard society against unwanted aspects of human life, and as such they can tell us about the present limits to freedom in our society: What is feared and repressed and what is encouraged and cultivated? Foucauldian and social constructivist theory can help with such analyses, but with inspiration from German critical theory we may also be able comment more normatively on the present for assessing children's personalities and behaviour.
