On Friday the snow finally came, just in time for the weekend! I have spent the weekend re-reading E. D Hirsch Jr. besides spending time with my family out in the snow and sun. If you are interested in education and the impact of understanding the need for basic factual knowledge,a detailed curriculum and the fact that the more you know, the easier it is to learn, I can highly recommend his work.
This week the National Test Results for all schools in Sweden were released and it is a nice read for all IES schools. IES students perform C-A grades on the National Tests in Swedish, English and Mathematics above the average ratio of both municipal and independent schools in Sweden.
Finally, this week's Team Kista Talk about acceptance can be found here!
