In a short time Sweden has changed from having one of the most centralised education systems to one of far-going decentralisation and management by objectives and results. Accordingly, state regulation of teaching hours in comprehensive education has gradually become weakened. The paper addresses questions related to time governance and school development, mainly at the municipal and school level. How do local directors of education and headteachers reason about the national time table and other factors governing and constraining time allocation? What and who are defined as driving forces and obstacles in this respect?
