Abstract [en]

The time period is 1941-1951. The place is Siljanskolan, a small boarding school in a Swedishrural setting, influenced by reform pedagogy. The ideological standpoint in this particular settingis that of trying to make the world a better place through a better upbringing of improved humanbeings. It is about offering an alternative educational setting in relation to the national publicschools. School as a home, and home as a school, are related ideas that shape the organization ofeveryday life at Siljanskolan. In a box where children could leave notes with questions, directed tothe school principal, a wide range of topics were addressed. Picking up random samples from thehundreds of questions in the box, we find for example ‘Why do we get salty food?’, ’Why is it warso often?’, ‘Why can't Margareta sleep in The Den?’, ‘Why do we get spanked?’ and ‘Why can't webe free?’ These questions were answered orally at regularly occurring evening assemblages at theschool and accordingly, seventy years later, the answers are nowhere to be found. Still thequestions are in them self interesting and this paper analyses the questions as comments onschool life, on power relations and the regulation of everyday life, as well as comments that aredirected to the ideological level. They are, in a double sense, a kind of micro-narratives wherechildren's voices are heard from within the archive material.
