SWEDEN: Immigrant Kids Outnumber Swedes In Major City, Swedish Now Minority Language In Schools

Researchers suggest not using Swedish in schools, as children learn easier in their native language.

Two thirds of children in the Swedish city of Malmö are from immigrant backgrounds, with researchers suggesting that Swedish should not be used in schools to aid in their education.

According to a new report from the city, as part of their integration “Growth Commission,” over two-thirds of children aged between 5 and 19 are from an immigrant background, either being born abroad, or born domestically with at least one parent from another country. Almost half of all residents (48%) are younger than 35.

Statistics on the city’s website show that for Malmö residents born outside of Sweden, the most common country of birth is Iraq, with over 11,675 living in the city. Other common countries of birth include Syria (8,669), Denmark (7,485), Poland (6,619), and Bosnia-Herzegovina (6,374). Around 4000-5000 people each are from Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Iran.

The new report, prepared by Erica Righard, an associate professor at the Department of Social Work and a research fellow at Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare, notes that Swedish is now, as a result, a minority language in schools.

As noted by daily newspaper Sydsvenskan, students would likely do better in school if they were taught in the language they know. Currently, students with an immigrant background struggle with the advanced Swedish vocabulary needed to attain higher grades.

The report also argued that in order to facilitate greater integration efforts in a “super diverse” city like Malmö, every ethnic group, and not just immigrants, need to work together to integrate into the society at large. As part of this, a new law should be introduced to stop data collection on the ethnic background or religion of citizens.

Righard noted that rapid demographic change, which resulted in the native Swedish population becoming a minority in their own country, was previously considered to simply be a “far-right conspiracy theory,” but is now obvious reality.

Sweden is known for being very accepting of refugees, and famously took in thousands during the Syrian Refugee Crisis of the last decade.

More recently, since the beginning of the 2022 Invasion of Ukraine, almost 50,000 Ukrainians have filed for refugee status in the Scandinavian country as of December.

Sweden boasts a population of around 10 million.

      The problem is, they are not illegal. Sweden invited them in according to my Swedish relatives.
      Sounds much like the US is doing now with the tsunami of illegals pouring in from every 3rd world Hellhole on the planet.

    Malmo has been Europe’s rape capital for years.

    “2030, that’s when we take over…” Slogan on a popular t-shirt worn by Muslim youth.

    Why is Western civilization committing cultural and racial suicide? For over 50 years, the western left has sent the subconscious message that whites can only ‘atone’ for their ancestral ‘sins’ by committing cultural and racial suicide.

    You can thank the treasonous Oluf Palme for this disaster. He ditcthed Tage Erlender’s immigration policy, then foisted multiculturalism on the unsuspecting public. While Barbara Lerner Spectre spews her hate for Swedes, one of her co-religionists has a different take.https://www.jpost.com/Jewish-World/Jewish-News/Sacks-Multiculturalism-threatens-democracy

    This is the fault of women. Globalist billionaires have divided Western society, with women being on their side, claiming to “nurture” all migrants. When push came to shove in the Ukraine, all the feminist women ran away from the front lines. When push comes to shove in the World, women will have no place to run to, and will pay for their mistakes.

    Are the Swedes enjoying what the Globalists and the NWO have given them?
