Michael Gove, the Tory shadow schools secretary, wants a similar scheme to Sweden's "friskolor" having been inspired by a visit, last year, to a number of Swedish schools, including IES in Täby.

The article, published by The Telegraph in the UK on October 23, features comments from IES CEO Mr Peter Fyles.
