The Folkeskole Year 2000: A National Strategy for Enhanced Learning.
Skovsgaard, Joern
This paper describes the Danish program, Folkeskole year 2000, an educational change strategy that involves an agreement between the teachers' union, the Association of Municipalities, and the Ministry of Education to improve education. The Folkeskole stipulates that the municipal council has the overall responsibility for the municipal school system, while individual schools are responsible for the quality of teaching. The program focuses on eight specific areas: quality and development; challenges for individual students (teaching must be planned and organized so that it meets the needs and prerequisites of individual students); knowledge and proficiencies (students in the Danish Folkeskole must be able to read, write, and do arithmetic at high levels); teaching materials and school buildings (which must be of sufficient quality and quantity); a good start as the common basis for future learning and development; parents (parents must share in the education of their children); management (management tasks must be defined, with increased understanding of management between the municipality, school administrators, and staff); and target-oriented use of resources (there must be an awareness of and solutions to promoting better use of resources in the Folkeskole).
