According to the union's voter survey, M does not have support among its own voters for it to be possible to take profits from independent schools and a majority wants the state to take over the leadership of municipal schools.

< Only the Sweden Democrats' and the Center Party's sympathizers show a lower figure compared to their own party's school policy. Both of these parties also support profit-taking from independent schools, which their voters do not do.

At the same time, more than one in three voters may consider changing party based on school policy, according to the survey.

It should “act as a real alarm signal to the party leadership”, writes Åsa Fahlén, chairman of the National Union of Teachers, in a debate article in Expressen.

Fahlén writes that there are potentially 2.7 million voters to win on a better school policy. The moderates should therefore make an effort to develop a school policy that has the potential to attract voters, she says.
