Teachers Wanted: Job Listings on Rise

It's easier to become a teacher in Sweden according to new statistics from the Swedish Teachers Union. During the spring over 14,000 open positions were advertized around the country. That's 28 percent more than during the same period last year.

Swedish Radio News reports that a province in the north and one in western Sweden were in the most need of teachers. Those provinces advertized for more than twice as many teachers than they did last year.
