Government Pledges More Money
Ahead of the school reform which is supposed to take place during the coming years the government has pledged some 30 million dollars to help teachers to adapt to the new system. Minister for Education Jan Björklund told Swedish Radio news his government would ensure that the pupils would not suffer from possible inconsistencies during the implementation of the school reform.
Teachers will have to get to know the new, extended, grading system – ranging from A to F – as well as the new curriculum. The Swedish Education Agency will be assigned to hold conferences and courses for teachers to learn the content of the school reform, said Björklund.
