Swedes Want State to Take Back Schools

A new poll indicates that Swedes don’t believe all schools are equal here, and they want the state to take back responsiblity from the municipalities.

The survey, commissioned by the teachers’ union, shows that 90 percent don’t think all schools maintain the required quality.

Seventy-three percent say the state should once again finance primary and secondary education, while 28 percent prefer the current system with municipal funding.

Perhaps more troubling for the center-right government, the poll also shows that three-quarters of conservative Moderate and Liberal party supporters object to allowing state-financed private schools to make profits.

With a conservative Moderate prime minister and the Liberals running the Ministry of Education, teachers’ union president Metta Fjelkner says the two parties are out of step with their own voters.
