Teachers "not prepared" for new grades system

Swedish school pupils will soon be find out their new grades under the new system, but the teacher's union says the introduction of the A-D system has been "underfinanced" and that the government has underestimated how much preparation was needed.

The president of one teachers' union, Eva-Lis Sirén, says that they have asked hundreds of teachers what they think about the new system. Only one in three of those polled said that they had got enough guidance and time to prepare.
