Displacement of problems – on children’s transition from
kindergarten to school
This article analyses how different parties in different ways contribute to the
societal development in which children are presented to the school’s discipline
and academic skills earlier and faster. The societal development is
analysed as being linked to both struggles between professions and trade
unions and intentions to help both children and their professional adults in
connection with the increasing demands to deliver more skilled citizens
quicker. The ambition to help children become better skilled is analysed as
a downward spiral throughout the (educational) system. The article focuses
in particular on the historical development of preschool systems as transitional
support for children when they start school. The article presents historical
grounds for establishing and developing the kindergarten class. Based
on this, the reasons for increasing the introduction of various preschool arrangements
for kindergarten class and school preparation in kindergartens
will be analysed.
