"Open letter to the minister for education, Anna Ekström about the importance of daring to speak"

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"Hi Anna Ekström, Congratulations and good luck with the new job as minister for education. "

"We know one thing that you can do for students to be able to distinguish the fake from facts, dare to express their opinions in good democratic spirit and learning to listen in various positions: Making rhetoric a compulsory subject in primary school again. "

"Digitisation and source criticism is high on the school agenda. Aristotle was far from digital but saw even then how the rhetoric protects against manipulative facts. Rhetoric gives us an understanding of how the message is formulated, disseminated and convinces and gives us the opportunity to ask critical questions. "

"A rhetorician always ask: What are the assumptions behind this claim? If the school teaches our students to question it, many parents put breakfast in my throat when the children punch holes in everything from the shoddy headlines and misleading advertising to political propaganda and trollskapad fake facts. "

"Do rhetoric compulsory in order to strengthen the democratic conversation and help students to dare to speak. Daniel Sandin, teachers who work with talrädsla and the author of the book Talrädsla in the school, says that, depending on the survey, it is between 15 and 25 percent of students suffering from talrädsla. "

"Of students in middle school and high school is 18 percent who have at some time stayed at home to avoid keeping his presentation. We want to give students the chance to speak with confidence, clarity and competence, and rhetoric as the topic provide training for just that. We have heard and seen the change in many of the students we worked with. Here is an example:

"”You have really proved me wrong! I went into the retorikkursen with the idea that I could not teach me to speak better. I wondered how you would be able to make me feel safer and more secure, and I thought it was impossible. You have given me the exact tools I needed to develop. I know more, can do more and believe more in myself as a speaker.” "

"We want to see a generation who can express themselves effectively in a meeting, lead the association the right, be a brave politician, a inlyssnande head, a well-liked business owners. All of this is important for the individual to succeed in the workplace. But even more important is the capability to safeguard the democratic conversation that we have long seen that obviously in our country. "

"To speak is important. To be able to listen is just as important. And the ability trains students when they get to learn rhetoric. We need the listening, the courage to face a dissent in the conversation that broadens horizons and increases compassion. "

"Rhetoric helps us to ask questions not judge another's approach in advance. It helps us understand how words can include rather than exclude. "

"Around the world, initiatives that allow dissidents to meet in conversation. Books that Invitational Rhetoric and Rhetorical listening released. Students create digital meeting-places Hi from the other side. Navid Modiri makes the podcast where different opinions leads to wisdom. Oprah invites Trump-supporters and the Clinton supporters on coffee and croissants. Schyffert talks with Oden Korsriddare and find the similarities that takes the edge off the fear. "

"the Initiatives germinate, but has not permeated the public discourse. If you make the rhetoric compulsory in Swedish school it can change. We yearn for the classroom where he epatraktorn has a prominent place next to the artistic genius. Where the girl gang lively discuss burkini and bikini and then joined to the dining room. We hope in the corridors, but overconfident ordbomber but with the soft, brave call. "

"the Rhetoric was an integral part of the Swedish formation until 1842. If you reinstate this so will contribute to a wiser source, your voices are being heard, and a dialogue climate where we listen to each other. We hope you want to! "
