I made a figure for the launch of Oslo SV’s election campaign that we didn’t use because we were concerned that the calculation method that I’ve used isn’t exactly the same as the usual one, when these matters are discussed. However, I certify that the numbers are right. You can check them at Grunnskolens informasjonssystem, and you can download the raw data here. This is the figure:
In my opinion, this shows that it’s a realistic option to increase the number of teachers per students in Oslo’s school. The discrepancy is a policy choice by Høyre. It also demonstrates that in a municipality where SV participates in a majority coalition, we choose to make the number of teachers per student a priority. It’s a fact one might want to make a note of.
