Preliminary version


In Sweden, a trust-based evaluation system meets a market-oriented school system which allows liberal entry conditions to voucher-funded private providers, several of which are for-profit corporations. The purpose of this chapter is to analyze how different providers respond to a system where teachers and schools are given a high degree of discretion with respect to school performance evaluation.

This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
