Back to School


The Stockholm Network released its latest policy video yesterday, this time tackling education reform and commending the Swedish model. Summing up the video's message, Helen Disney, the SN's director, said: "The State should continue to fund most primary and secondary education, but such money ought to follow pupils in the form of a voucher and be spent in a much more competitive and open market of independent providers. Learning from the Swedish policy agenda which has greatly encouraged school choice, parents and teachers must be allowed to set up their own schools where there is a critical mass of local support."
