Contrary to the view that privately run schools would improve academic results and improve the learning experience, such is not the reality in Sweden. A majority of the people, 56 percent, want the schools to be nationalized, according to a survey by a polling organisation Novus for the Swedish teacher association.


But so far, only the Liberals are pushing the issue in parliament, writes Swedish Teachers' Association in a statement.

“There is a clear will of public opinion to change the school's control system,” said Chairman Metta Fjelkner.

The survey shows that four out of five respondents did not believe that all students have the same chance to an equal education in the current regime.
