OECD Education at a Glance – ingen rolig läsning för svenska lärare

Årets upplaga av OECD:s Education at a Glance är ingen rolig läsning för svenska lärare.

Svenska lärare tjänar i snitt 42 000 kronor mindre om året än OECD-genomsnittet.

Under perioden 2000-2010 ökade lärarlönerna i Sverige i snitt med 8% och i OECD med 22%.

Som diagrammmet nedan visar var utvecklingen när det gäller lön efter 15 års yrkesverksamhet inte heller mycket att hänga i julgranen:

  1. Google ‘translate’ did a good job on this post.

    It raises the question as to whether Sweden is following the same path as Victorian England, and apparently the US, where the education system is more of a socializing institution designed for the children of the elites to reinforce class structure. Consider that in 1900, towards the end of the Victorian era, German universities produced 3000 graduate engineers per year while,”in England and Wales only 350 graduated in all branches of science, technology and mathematics…” (From Hobsbawm in ‘Industry and Empire’ (1999) p160)

    Thus, England would enter the 20th century with a smug, unscientific and technologically illiterate upper class, kept afloat by the rapidly growing financial sector and soaring overseas investments. At the same time the home industry continued to be burdened by declining investment in education and plummeting capitalization to modernize production and preserve competitiveness.

    There seems to be a pattern here. Please see “Economics:Repeating Rhymes”
