Earlier, we wrote on this web page that Sweden’s handling of the coronavirus has not included repressive measures and should in that respect serve as a good example. However, there is one disgraceful exception from that.
In the city of Arboga in central Sweden, a citizen’s initiative reached enough support for a municipal referendum to be held regarding a public school (all links in this post are to content in Swedish). However, the referendum was first postponed, with reference to the coronavirus, which was probably just a poor excuse. Sweden’s state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell saw no obstacles to a referendum in Arboga. Now the referendum has been canceled by the leading politicians in Arboga, who in this way pushed through the permanent closure of a public school in Medåker (in Arboga municipality) – something they wanted all along.
