Pupils and Parents Not Satisfied

Published måndag 8 juni 2009 kl 13.52

Either Stockholm's schools are getting worse - or people's standards have risen. The latest user survey shows that pupils and parents in the Swedish capital are less satisfied with their schools performance in many important areas.

Every other year the city's statistical bureau carries out a survey of 40,000 school pupils; parents answer on their experience of their children's day care and pre-school classes.

And it's in these early classes that user satisfaction seems to be dropping the most. There's also a clear age difference, with lower satisfaction among pupils in Year Nine than in Year Six.

This result comes as the National Union of Teachers in Sweden hits out at 'frightening' failures in the local authorities' management of schools. In broadsheet Dagens Nyheter the union claims that many local authorities are breaking the law by ignoring the national curriculum, and that this calls for a full scale investigation.
