School Vouchers in Sweden

The Swedish government undertook significant reform in the education sector in the 1990s. Among the important steps in this reform were the institution of vouchers for schooling, decentralisation of education to the municipal level, and entry of private for-profit schools. This publication reviews the Swedish model, outlines the successes, challenges and gaps in the model, and highlights the political currency of this policy in present-day Sweden.
