Recurrent Education, Policy and Development in OECD Countries: The Swedish View of Recurrent Education.
This report, part of a series on the state of recurrent education in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries, focuses on recurrent education in Sweden. The Swedish concept of recurrent education envisages a radical change in the whole system of education. Swedish educators see it as a strategy that will change the present postcompulsory system into a system that emphasizes the alternation between work and study throughout a lifetime. After a short introduction, section 2 outlines the various models of recurrent education in Sweden. Section 3 examines the objectives of recurrent education in relation to equality, the labor market, a common set of values, and pedagogy. Section 4 details the problem areas in the course of implementing the program. It takes into account changes in the secondary school, admission policy, distribution of educational resources and outreach activities, eeducational finance, and the relation between formal and informal education. Section 5 concludes with remarks and observations on the present position of recurrent education in Sweden. (DE)
