Writing in the newspaper Dagens Nyheter Saturday, Social Democrat leader Stefan Löfven and Eva-Lis Sirén, president of the Swedish Teachers' Union, call for measures to improve the role and quality of teachers in this country.

In order to counter declining results in Swedish schools, and diminish the importance of family background, they present proposals to attract the most gifted young people to the teaching profession. These include: smaller classes, fewer administrative chores for teachers, resources allocated according to the needs of schools, and more attention to research and new discoveries.

Educators have complained about the low status of teaching in Sweden, and teachers’ salaries here have lagged behind those in other countries.
