In marginalised areas, schools with low academic achievement challenge the Swedish education system's goal of high-quality education for all. This project concerns top-down politically initiated measures for increased equality and botom-up local initiatives to strengthen the compensatory capacity of schools in marginalised areas of large cities and in rural areas. At present, there is little systematic knowledge about the effects of the different types of initiative and how they are designed and adapted to the contexts that constitute large cities and rural areas. The project uses a mixed-method approach combining i) a survey with staff members at a selection of schools from across the country in large cities.
