"This country note was prepared as part of the OECD thematic review of equity in education across member countries. The review aims to assist countries in developing and implementing effective policies for equity in education. It examines the contribution of different phases of education to lifetime equity and inequity and looks, in particular, at socio-economic, ethnic, regional and gender issues. It is primarily concerned with equality of opportunity while recognising that relative equality of outcomes is often used as an indicator of equality of opportunity."
"The purpose of the review in Sweden is to identify how well Swedenâ€™s educational system delivers equity in education, and its capacity to identify and resolve equity problems as they arise.
The Country Note begins with a short presentation of the general economic, political and socio demographic context that impact on policies for equity in education. It then briefly reviews the education context, including recent education reforms. The following chapters are devoted to each of the OECD themes underlying the review in terms of how the political and legal framework is conducive to equity in education, whether there is fairness in financial arrangements for education, how transition, access and
selection mechanisms are conducive to equity, and what are the specific tools to address equity issues systematically. A specific chapter is devoted to the issue of ethnic minorities in Swedish education, given the recent high immigration inflows into Sweden. The final chapter contains the conclusions in terms of strengths and challenges for the system and points to some key policy issues for further consideration."
