Lighed gennem særbehandling? Heldagsskoler og spredning som ekspliciteret særbehandling af etniske minoritetsbørn og udtryk for aktuelle tendenser.

Abstract : In the PhD thesis "Equality through differential treatment?", Gro Hellesdatter Jacobsen explores two current differential treatment policies with equality as aim, namely all day schools and bussing on the basis of language tests. Using a diagnostic approach, the two policies are connected with current societal tendencies, and suggestions are given as to why it since 2005 has been legitimate to practice explicit differential treatment, which implies restriction of rights of ethnic minority children. On the basis of documents, interviews and observations it is shown how the grounds for the differential treatment policies are highly complex and how they are constituted as differential treatment. Thus they result in new categorizations, explicitations and structures and make a difference in the lives of ethnic minority children and their families in regard to time, place and responsibility. Furthermore it is shown how tendencies towards language focus, exceptions and national competitive state may explain the introduction and legitimacy of the policies. Hence the thesis presents alternatives to current critiques of differential treatment as expressing discrimination motivated by nationalism and racism.
