Sammanfattning (abstract):
The current study is analysing the public opinion in Sweden in relation to education careers and trust in science. We ask if trust in science is different over different fields of knowledge and over different careers into society. Of special interest is here the perception of educational research among persons in education careers compared to the perception of e.g. Engineering and Technology as fields of research for persons working in engineer positions. The analyses are based on research on the professions and research. Data for the analyses are acheived from the SOM-institute survey of the Swedish population to which 55 percent of 3 400 individuals were responding. This data was conceived of having high quality. Results showed that there was in general a public trust in research, but less so for the humanities and social sciences, including educational research. This was also present when comparing relations between educational routes and research related to this research. These findings concerning the Swedish opinion are of importance for a principal understanding of the perception of educational research in public discourses and policy-making as well as the tasks for teaching on educational research in teacher education.
