Drawing on discursive psychology this article examines the understandings
teachers and principals in Danish Public Schools have regarding Somali
diaspora parenting practices. Furthermore the article investigates what these
understandings mean in interaction with children in the classrooms and with
parents in home-school communication. It is argued that in a society with
increased focus on parental responsibility the teachers and principals draw on
a deficit logic when dealing with Somali diaspora parents and children which
consequently leads to teachers either transmitting their expertise by educating
parents or compensating for perceived deficiencies in parental practices. Both
these strategies result in significant marginalizing consequences where difference is understood as 'wrong' or 'inadequate'.
