Abstract

The study highlights the extension and scope of teachers’ work. Swedish teachers reflected on this before and after visiting schools in France, where “CPE-staff” alleviate teachers with different tasks. In sum, findings indicate that the extension and scope of teachers’ work can be discussed in terms of what, when and where, but also as already institutionalized or something that reshapes during negotiations on a daily basis. The findings are analyzed by the concepts of “structure” and “communitas” (Turner, 1974, 2008), highlighting how the professional boarders are dependent on patterns of structures and relationships within the school as an organization.
