Education in Sweden: Some Recent Developments in Comparison with New Zealand Education in 1992

  • James Collinge

Abstract

In December 1990 the Swedish Riksdag (parliament) made a number of extremely significant policy decisions for the reallocation of responsibilities within the school system. These decisions, in the form of amendments to the Education Act, came into force on 1 January, 1991. This paper examines many of these changes as they affect the compulsory education sector, the upper secondary school and municipal adult education, placing them in the context of the aims and characteristics of Swedish education and making some comparisons with the situation in New Zealand.
