Sweden in the European Union: The Secondary School in Transition
Abstract:In voting to join the European Union, Sweden has been obliged to bring its institutions more in line with the general pattern operative within the Union. To that end, its educational system has been modified to approximate more closely those on the continent. These changes are most evident at the secondary level of education. This paper argues that the changes are more than cosmetic; they reflect a fundamental shift in Swedish society.
