Green Party wants healthy school environment

The Green Party wants to renovate and improve the environment in Swedish schools. That was the main message when the party's joint leaders, Gustav Fridolin, spoke to the press in Almedalenon Tuesday morning.

The party proposes spending SEK1.5 billion to improve Swedish classrooms.

"We hope and believe that this is an investment that will ensure that by 2020 we have a good working environment in all schools in Sweden," said Gustav Fridolin.

The Green Party says it wants to finance the investment by halting the coalition government's series of tax reductions.

Fridolin, who is a qualified teacher, added that apart from the environment, education and job creation are the top priorities for the party.
