Standards Must be Raised in Maths and Sciences

Published måndag 23 februari 2009 kl 12.15

The Swedish government says its investing 125 million Kronor this year on improving school children’s knowledge of maths and the sciences.

The money, around 14.3 million US dollars, will be shared out between communal schools and free schools who want to develop their teaching in maths and the sciences.

Skolverket, the National Agency for Education will also recieve a share of the money to research how teaching can be improved.

At a press conference on Monday, Education minister Jan Björklund said that knowledge and performance in maths and the sciences had been declining steadily and he wanted to take steps to reverse the negative trend.
