Director General, Swedish National Agency for Education, Stockholm Abstract Key Note
Today´s first priority is of course crisis management. The European inability to live up to the Lisbon Agenda is a lost opportunity to address the competitiveness problems in good time and with more adequate resources. The most pressing evidence of Europe’s competitiveness problems is youth unemployment. Young persons without basic education are most at risk. But education alone is not enough to get an adequate job, or even an inadequate job. Unemployment is increasing dramatically also in groups with high education. Education programmes therefore need to focus more on content and less on quantity. Compared to other government programmes, money spent on high quality schools, university programmes and research give more in return than alternative programmes. More efforts should be made to include future employers in these programmes.
