Sweden vows to ban ALL religious schools in an effort to tackle segregation

Sweden could be set to ban all religious schools, following a proposal from the leading party ahead of this year’s election.

The Social Democratic party, which currently leads a minority government, has pledged to ban all religious free schools to tackle segregation in the country.

Ardalan Shekarabi, Sweden’s minister for Public Administration said that ‘teachers, not priests and imams should be in charge of schools’.
