New law will enable mobile ban in school


Tomorrow, the Minister of Education Anna Ekström will present a new rapid investigation aimed at creating a better study atmosphere at the school. Before that, the Liberals have pushed through tougher legislation to ban cell phones and to make it easier to move on students who are exposing others to violence or threats.

- We have big problems with security and study in Swedish schools. Half of the students in the first year state that they have been exposed to threats, violence, sexual harassment or bullying. A quarter of the teachers have been exposed to threats or violence. So we can't have it, says Nyamko Sabuni, who is party leader for the Liberals, to SVT News.

The national plan for security and study which the school minister will present tomorrow contains several parts. The investigator who receives the assignment will have until the end of next year to present a number of suggestions on how this will be achieved.

Two changes to the law

In this palette, at least two changes to the law will be made. Firstly, the law should be tightened so that it becomes clear that schools are really allowed to ban mobiles during teaching, and secondly, legislative proposals should be made that clarify that students who threaten or expose other students or school staff to violence can be more easily suspended or repositioned.

- There is already the possibility in the School Act to move pupils, but up to 80 to 85 percent of school leaders state that they do not use this law due to the lack of clarity and uncertainty about what they are entitled to do, says Nyamko Sabuni.
