The purpose of this paper is to describe the formal restrictions, and possibilities, in teachers’ autonomy in Norway. The paper is the groundwork for a European comparison made by the Slovenian Presidency of the European Union. The last few decades have seen many reforms in the field of teaching and education in Norway, as in the rest of Europe. These reforms and changes have affected the role of teachers in many ways; for instance on the influence teachers have on their daily work situation, or the influence teachers have in central negotiations concerning wages and working hours. This paper is an attempt to describe teacher autonomy and influence. It is written on commission from the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, and is a part of the Norwegian contribution to the collection of information on responsibilities and autonomy of teachers in preparation for the working document for the Slovenian presidency of the European Union.
