Swedish minister criticizes some private schools

Jan Björklund.

Swedish Education Minister Jan Björklund has sharpened his criticism of publicly-supported private schools - saying that some of them are obviously more interested in making a profit rather than providing good quality teaching.

The minister is the head of the Liberal Party in the four-party center-right government and so far has strongly defended the growing number of private schools. He has long rejected heated criticism from the opposition that the school system should not be making profits and should be forced to follow national regulations for education.

Some checks on private schools have shown that some have ignored the national curriculum.

Critics have protested over private religious schools providing unbalanced teaching, other private schools making huge profits while failing to provide promised resources for the youngsters and some schools run by by front men and women for convicted criminals.
