Increased resources rarely increase knowledge


In this podcast Gabriel Sahlgren, PhD student at London School of Economics and an affiliate of IFN, and Johan Wennström, PhD student at Linköping University and employed at IFN, talks about education in Swedish schools and research in this field. They agree that there are extensive problems in the Swedish education system. Both point to the fact that "student-centered teaching methods" may be a partial explanation for declining results. This kind of education has multiplied since the 1990s.
