The paper describes aspects and dilemmas concerning streaming of students according to ability in an ongoing developmental project in a small town in Norway. The project is part of a governmental effort to implement the New Norwegian curricula plan “Kunnskapsløftet1”. This new plan introduces streaming of students, which is new in the Norwegian school context. The data presented are from focus groups involving teachers in which ideological conflicts are identified.
