the Swedish schools Inspectorate decided last week to put in the government's action against Storvretskolan in the municipality of Botkyrka. The decision came after several years of criticism, the school has not come to grips with serious drawbacks. It was the first time ever that the authority took to this type of action.
– these findings are serious, but what is most serious is that it lasted for such a long time despite the fact that the school imposed with a penalty twice during this time, said Jukka Kuusisto, head of department at the Swedish schools Inspectorate, to DN.
also announced that it would appoint two special advisers work full-time at the school to get to grips with the problems.
Now it is clear that the school principal is replaced, according to a press release from the Botkyrka municipality.
– the Principal is taken out of service from Storvretskolan, but is still in service in Botkyrka municipality, " says Mikael Caiman Larsson, utbildningsdirektör in Botkyrka municipality, to DN on Monday afternoon.
There will also be a change in the organization within the department of education in the municipality of Botkyrka, in which the future principal will no longer have the deputy grundskolechefen as their next manager. In the future, the headmaster rather than to report directly to the municipal grundskolechef.
" We are very serious about Skolinspektionens decision and the inability of the Storvretskolan. A number of measures have been taken, but they have not had sufficient impact. At the same time, it is important to point out that most of the schools in Botkyrka works well. There are other schools in Botkyrka, where the Inspectorate highlighted the shortcomings, and these are addressed in the normal case in a satisfactory manner. Therefore, it is essential that we make changes that ensure that discrepancies are always caught up in all of our schools and to be rectified as soon as possible. The regular reconciliation with the policy will also be tighter, " says Mikael Caiman Larsson in the press release.
