From "Bildung" to Entrepreneurship: Trends in Education Policy in Sweden
Ringarp, Johanna
Policy Futures in Education, v11 n4 p456-464 2013
The European Union would like to improve its efforts to promote entrepreneurship within the Union. More new companies and more entrepreneurs are needed to increase the Union's competitiveness. In order to achieve this goal, the education sectors of the member countries must be reformulated to include entrepreneurship in their education programmes. In the autumn of 2011, Sweden's comprehensive schools received a new curriculum, in which entrepreneurship is one of the key elements. This article discusses the connection between the European Union's goal to increase entrepreneurship and the creation of Sweden's education policy. It also deals with the impact of the change on the previous focus of Sweden's education policy - namely, "a school for all".
