School in our time is a long-term IVA project for the purpose of promoting the development of Swedish school education to meet the long-term knowledge needs of students and society, and to secure Sweden’s position as a knowledge nation. It will focus on compulsory school and upper secondary education, with an emphasis on compulsory school.
Our vision is a strong and equal education system that promotes democracy, belief in the future and knowledge in a changing world.
Our project is aimed at:
- Policymakers, school providers, government agencies, politicians, education professionals, students, researchers and interest groups.
- The private sector, industry and other employers.
- Members of the public with an interest in the topic.
School in our time has long-term funding thanks to funds raised for IVA’s Jubilee Fund during the Academy’s centenary in 2019. The work will be carried out in subprojects in close cooperation with the IVA-project The Knowledge Society of the Future.
