Abstract Freedom for anyone to set up a school, get state funding to run it, and try and turn a profit as well. This, simply put, is the supply side model for education in Sweden. But could it work here? Michael Gove, the Conservative Shadow Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families thinks it could, with some slight adaptation. We travelled to Sweden to find out more about how their adoption of independent schools within the state school system has apparently encouraged parental choice and increased competition across the board, as well as exploring how Swedish style approaches are already been applied here in the Britain.
