‘Post-Truth’ and the Decline of Swedish Education

2018-09-18 Quillette

Magnus Henrekson and Johan Wennström, IFN, write in The Quillette about recently published research on the Swedish school system: "Lessons from Sweden indicate that countries with a tradition of social-constructivist practices in their education system, and which are considering implementing or expanding market-based school reforms, should proceed with caution. For example, the U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has stated that she wants to enact a model of school choice that is identical to the one Sweden has."
