Can't make this stuff up. Way to go Sweden!

Granted, the programs concerned may not all be considered highly important, but more to the point, this IS happening at unis in Sweden, for some time now.

Get your goolge translate ready: https://www.dn.se/debatt/lararstudenter-sak...rivfardigheter/

You'd think a rich country like Sweden would consider re-thinking its stance on poor teacher wages and working conditions etc, before it would come to this. But this is Sweden, and Sweden is an arrogant diva.

It turns out that (an estimated) 20% (that's 1 in 5) of those meeting entrance elligibility critera for teachier studies in courses offered at 9 universities, if these "measures" even qualify as "criteria", do not have the language skills in Swedish, to be able to comprehend the course content required to become a teacher.

How can this happen, you wonder in shock and amazement? It's easy. Simply lower the "entrance" bar so far, that almost receiving a "0" score on the entrance exam, means, come on down, you're in! You can be one of Sweden's "teachers of tomorrow", whilst essentially failing the entrance exam, and being unable to express yourself, in the Swedish language.

Scores as low as 0.05 earned for universitry entrance exams at 9 Swedish universities mean that Swedish-illiterate people are entering the Swedish teachers education, and graduating as "teachers", even though they are unable to take advantage of the education offered, because they can't understand the course instructions and content.

Brilliant! Sweden, being the well-oiled super-machine it is, is destined to press on into tomorrow, as the envy of the Western world at large.

To Sweden! May your future, be bright!

I would like to see a similar literacy study for Swedish politician. I mean, the prime minister is a welder (maybe a good one, or a bad one - hence reorientation)

PM didn't go to University.

Doesn't happen everywhere, only in a few places for some specific programs. Most of all, if the teacher can't show sufficient skills they will be promptly reported by the students and sacked by the principal. Nothing that hasn't happened before.

"...Most of all, if the teacher can't show sufficient skills"

Haha, sure. But why waste tax payer money in this way, to pay to "educate" someone, who isn't fit for purpose.

Is there a word for "standards", in Swedish?

And REX, wasn't it you who once defended the utter incompetence of MV workers, stating that they really didn't need to know how to do their job properly, because they were not lawyers?

Long live LAGOM!

Hmmm, https://www.thelocal.se/20171219/swedish-sc...-77000-teachers

Perhaps Sweden then might try to take the creation of teachers more seriously, and have the system weed out the useless ones, instead of leaving that task to the children.

One problem is no-one wants to be a teacher!

There are so many more attractive jobs out there...especially in the age of social media and startups. Also, the pay and benefits are not that great. And there are no added incentives to be a teacher, besides the holidays...

It will be no surprise that immigrants will dominate the teaching field in next few years.

"One problem is no-one wants to be a teacher! "

Hmm, but someone needs to teach Sweden's little brats, no? Why is this not a problem elsewhere?

Another lump under the carpet that is Sweden, getting a little too overgrown.

This has been a problem for many years.
It is just getting far worse. It is common sense to us, that if there is high birth rate, there needs to be more teachers in schools, but no, the politicans are just daft.

It starts with Dagis. Where you have to register your child at birth...

True! It is too dangerous now, especially with them being attacked at their homes...

Oh how peaceful things were...

And then we have the obsessive Swedish ultra-Fembot educators, thinly veiling hard-left ideological propaganda, in Swedish universities, as a tool to tackle "gender-imbalance".

https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/12...ading-list-sake

Just couldn't make this shit up.

And then, to see for yourself, have a look at these new founded "gender equality" centres at the various Swedish unis. Just watch in awe as any sense of gender balance is completely absent (i.e. where are all the men?)

So, are these gender equity centres, or just breeding grounds for Sweden's infamous militant man-hating ultra-Fembots to spout their senseless propaganda?
