OK, fine, so it’s the only reason so far I’ve seen to move to Sweden, but surely there are others. Like loads of hotties, or something.
STOCKHOLM (AFP) â€” The Swedish government on Monday presented a series of proposals banning public and independent schools from introducing religious elements into their classes except during religion lessons.
Religious elements “can take place … but only outside of coursework. Teaching should not be influenced” by religious beliefs, Swedish Education Minister Jan Bjoerklund told reporters.
He said religion could still be studied at school as a separate subject but other classes could in no way be influenced by religious convictions.
For example, the origin of human life would have to be explained from a scientific point of view and not a religious one, he said.
See, one good reason. And a few others*.
