Abstract

Currently, large parts of the Swedish public perceive Sweden’s school system to be in a state of crisis. This has led to a lively debate on educational matters in Sweden. The article discusses some particularly prominent aspects of this debate as well as some of its underlying developments in the Swedish school system. It focuses on the effects of educational markets and decentralization on the one hand and the situation of the teaching profession on the other.
