Schools with low educational results in segregated and marginalized areas challenge the Swedish educationsystem's goal of a high-quality school for all. This project is about examining politically initiated measures forincreased equality (top-down measures) and local initiatives to strengthen the school's compensatory capacity (bottom-up initiatives). At present, there is little systematic knowledge about the effects of top-down measures and almost no deep understanding of bottom-up initiatives for improving the quality of schools with low educational results in marginalized areas. Against this background, the project aims to study how improvement initiatives for schools with low educational results are implemented. How different forms of top-down measures and bottom-up initiatives and different components of such interventions have an effect, and in what way and to what extent they promote students' knowledge development and secure more equal life opportunities.
