Denmark looks at Australia in order to save our collapsed school-system

In culture on November 26, 2015 at 06:57

In 1951 the Australian School of the Air broadcasted for the first time. For more than 50 years this concept has functioned very well for the students living far away from the cities.

2016 will most likely be the first year Denmark will try this concept out. Now Radios have been replaced by Internet based schooling but this move has been necessary as result of both the migration crisis and the general cuts in Danish education. Over a period of very few years Denmark will cut billions on the education system.

It means shortage of teachers and because it is considered inhumane to banish a person more than 20 kilometers away to seek a career because it would result in isolation from family and friends, it has been hard – almost impossible for schools outside the major cities to find teachers who can speak foreign languages or teach in technical demanding subjects which requires higher education.

So the future is online based schooling resembling the Australian concept. Now children living maybe 20 to 30 miles away can get an education like they do in the cities.

We have to praise our politicians for their effort to find solutions in this time of crisis.
