Education and immigration on Swedish radio – towards increased confusion

Today’s editorial in Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter deals with a debate yesterday on Swedish radio (P1). There, minister of education, Jan Björklund and Swedish Green Party Spokesperson Gustav Fridolin discussed education issues (basically: why Swedish pupils’ school results are getting ever worse), a hotly debated subject in recent years. However, they apparently managed to throw in another hotly debated subject into the equation, namely that of immigration/xenophobia/nationalist party Sverigedemokraterna (SD).

While there may be some connection point between the two subjects, mixing them does nothing to dispel the confusion that seems to pervade both of them.
