bookmark_borderAnnas første tur til Danmark


Happy Anna

Anna flyver til København (via Amsterdam) mandag den 7. april og tager hjem igen tidligt søndag morgen den 13. april.

Hun tager mig med, da jeg er stedkendt, og sin mor, da hun leverer mælken.

Vi tager til nok til Sønder Vissing (så hun kan besøge sine bedsteforældre) tirsdag eller evt. onsdag, og vi tager vel tilbage til København lørdag, men alt afhænger af, hvem der vil have besøg af hende hvornår. Send mig en mail, hvis du/I er interesseret i at se hende!

Swedish Middle School

The Spectator’s Fraser Nelson has written a good piece about the Swedish “free school” system – basically a system where private schools get money from the councils depending on their number of pupils.

AFAIK, Fraser is married to a Swede, so he’s normally fairly clued up on Sweden.

I’m not quite sure how the Swedish free school system differs from the Danish one. I do believe it’s existed in Denmark for much longer than in Sweden, though.

Although I might disagree with some of the finer details, it’s one of the (few) areas where I broadly agree with the Tories. It’s absolutely ridiculous that private schools are so expensive here. It just drives up house prices in the catchment areas of good public-sector schools, while making it harder for new ideas to spread.
