Trouble-Hit Malmö School to Reopen After Closure

The Local, March 2, 2015

A Malmö school that closed concerns of violence and criminality is set to reopen to pupils on Tuesday morning, after crisis talks were held between staff and directors on Monday.

Roine Selind, chairman of the Malmö area of one of Sweden’s two teachers’ unions, confirmed to newswire TT that the Värner Rydén School is to reopen on Tuesday morning.

“The pupils are welcome tomorrow. We have spent all morning and afternoon in discussions with the employer about what measures are deemed necessary. There are urgent issues that need to be solved tomorrow as well as more long-term solutions,” he said.

Crisis talks were held on Monday after the teachers’ union declared the school in the Rosengård area of Malmö too dangerous a place for students and teachers to attend due to widespread violence and criminality.

The current situation has developed since the closure of nearby Örtagård School last autumn. Many of the school’s students were relocated to Värner Rydén, bringing conflicts with them, as The Local reported over the weekend.

Catharina Niwhede, of the other teachers’ union in Malmö, told newswire TT on Monday that the two schools merging is one of the reasons behind the problem.

“It has been unstable for some time now, we have been working with this all autumn. There hasn’t been as much progress as we would have liked to see for it to feel like a safe place to work,” she said.

Jan Björklund, leader of the Swedish Liberal Party, criticized the school closure.

He told TT: “Those fighting should be suspended, not all the others. These 10-15 pupils that this concerns perhaps need to be put in a special teaching group in a separate room.”

But he said more teachers, which both of Sweden’s two teachers’ unions have called for, is not the answer.

“It won’t solve any issues if you don’t also reclaim some kind of authority. You cannot let the youths be in charge, that’s the most important thing,” he said.

Värner Rydén pupil Mohammed Khalil told SVT he understands the teachers’ situation.

“I understand that they feel afraid, because there has been too much disorder. After the merger we have far too many pupils here,” he said.

The City of Malmö’s education department told TT earlier that they will hire a security firm in order to make the school environment safer. Teaching staff will also be given help with security and conflict management.

    Libtards with their heads up their asses and not the whit of an idea of how to solve the problem. Sickening the complete absence of mention of race. Libtards make me want to vomit.

      I didn’t need to get farther than ‘heads up their rears’ to give you a positive vote. Unfortunately, it will take a crowbar and an industrial strength pneumatic-extractor to get them out. They may be a tad smelly.

    Sounds like Chicago.

      And yet when they merge two majority-white schools together the students don’t go wilding in full chimpout mode. I wonder why.

      • Jesse_from_Sweden

        Yeah, but the problem here wasn’t the merger.
        No, the original school, Örtagårdsskolan, was already a hotbed of problems.
        But the libtards blamed it on things like school environment, old buildings, poor surroundings and so on.
        So they closed it down and moved the students to the nearby school which has new fresh buildings and class rooms, thinking that would actually solve the problem.

        It didn’t, of course, you can’t fix a problem like this merely by moving it from one place to another.

          Their philosophy is such that moving sick people to a new hospital will make them all well.

          Perhaps moving the dead to a maternity ward will make the alive. there may be no end to the benefits of liberal milieu therapy.

          We have the same with forced bussing. I’m sure you must have heard about that. It has been a failure for 50 years, but liberals scream if anyone tries to end it.

  • Kronolog

    One should note that Jan Björklund was the minister of education during the period 2006-2014, and despite being in office for eight years he made no attempts to increase the authority of the teachers, nor did he make it possible for the schools to segregate the “bad apples” from their classmates. Not that the teachers actually want more authority, mind you; the teacher’s unions are only interested in higher wages – which he happily granted them.

    Send anti-Muslim groups march to support to expell all muslims out of Sweden NOW !!!!!!! Then there will have almost crime gone

    Recently, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Norway got together to preserve all the world’s seeds for posterity in a bunker on the Arctic island Svalbard.

    Too bad they don’t think of preserving themselves first. Whatever you value will go on; whatever you do not value will wither and die.

    Sweden may be the first White Euro country to fall to the non-White 3rd world immigrant hordes — yet Sweden continues to “welcome” Muslims and Somalis from Africa and has vowed to accept an unlimited number of Syrian refugees

    Legacy of cultural marxists who planned and executed the genocide of Native Born Swedes:

    Sweden is rape capital of the world

    In 1975, the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the former homogeneous Sweden into a multicultural country. Forty years later the dramatic consequences of this experiment emerge: violent crime has increased by 300%; rape has increased by 1,472%.

    Sweden: Muslim immigrant gangs control no-go zones

    The situation in the gang-controlled no-go zones of Sweden is deteriorating rapidly. Following the police report conceding the areas to the primarily Muslim immigrant gangs, the Swedish ambulance union is now demanding military grade protection gear to enter the no-go zones.

    Sweden: Several birds found to have racist names – now they are being replaced

    Several birds with racist and offensive names are being replaced in an effort by the Swedish Ornithological Society.

    The Swedish Ornithological Society has produced a list of Swedish names of all the world’s birds and found the names of several species racist and offensive, TV 4 reports.

      I’m pretty sure S. Africa isn’t on that chart for a good reason.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        It is on the international murder chart.

        • John Smith

          They ought to have rape stats too, then, unless they’re hiding something.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            Those who are raped in SA – with broken bottles, hot pokers or 2 X 4s stuffed up… men, women, babies and elderly.

            Well, they don’t survive so they’re counted as murders.

          • I used to shiver and then vomit water most mornings at the front. I hate what is being done to normal people. I always felt OK again after a few stiff drinks for breakfast. I doubt a teacher would be allowed that privilege.

            I don’t know about rakija or any other alcoholic beverage to start or end the day (so old school).

            Many teachers start their day with Prozac, Xanex, Zoloft, Wellburtrin, Paxil or Lexapro – sometimes combinations of two, three or more.

            It’s the only way some in my profession can cope.

          • Rakija is plum brandy, like slivovits.

          I wonder what the increase of crime is in good ole’ USA after the 1965 Immigration Act passed?

    • If someone raped my wife, my daughter, my sister or my mother, I’d kill him in half.

    Turning your schools into armed fortresses isn’t the solution.
    Expel the interlopers.

    • Sick of it

      “Expel the interlopers.”

      You’d have to start with their government and the people who give them marching orders.

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    Few places on the planet boast such a glaring failure of multiracial/multiculturalism as Sweden as almost all crime is nonwhite. That they would still proceed in the face of such overwhelming evidence is evidence itself of some kind of madness.

      Social democracy can only exist in a homogeneous society where all people share the same value, belief system, and even the same biological characteristics. As Sweden chooses to go on the path of no return, their core value gradually vanishes for sure. This is not only cultural suicide, but also harm to Sweden’s long term development and economy. Sweden’s HDI expects to reduce to a 3rd world standard within just a few decade. Now the economy of Sweden shows a clear sign of deterioration. Destruction comes from all aspects.

      • MikeofAges

        I like to put things in earthy ways. I long ago started saying, social democracy worked in Sweden as long as everyone was Swedish. As soon as they were not, it began to fail. There is a lesson here. Scandinavian social democracy is not a solution to America’s endemic social problems. There may be solutions needed, but the social democratic concept will not provide them.

    “Many of the school’s students were relocated to Värner Rydén, bringing conflicts with them”

    You mean moving them from one area to another area does nothing to solve the problem?

    How about stopping them from moving to Sweden in the first place.

  • John Smith

    Unless the teachers are equipped with tasers and truncheons, good luck with more teachers solving the problem. The muslim student implied it was just too many students, but the real issue is what KIND of students before how many.

    What kind of country, especially one with a liberal welfare state, can’t realize that it isn’t poverty that makes these students behave like this – there were surely poor Swedish students before now? It is their ethnicity and religious background that are the root cause, but no one dares mention that lest they get in trouble with the law.

  • GeneticsareDestiny

    He told TT: “Those fighting should be suspended, not all the others. These 10-15 pupils that this concerns perhaps need to be put in a special teaching group in a separate room.”

    The U.S. has already been down this path. The politically correct powers that be will cry racism when there’s a disproportionate impact on certain races and you will then no longer be allowed to separate the actual students from those who are there only to cause trouble.

  • John Smith

    Anders Breivik, instead of being vilified, ought to be celebrated for doing something to try to keep Nordic countries white. The people he killed, including the teenagers, were part of the leftist multicultural cabal or soon would’ve been, shocking at the sentiment would seem to some.

    Was the closure another high school burning?

    Reading that article is like reading about the aftermath of the destruction of Hiroshima by the US air force in 1945, but mentioning neither the US air force or the atomic bomb in the article.

    Muslims! Right? They are pretty good at turning a tranquil neighborhood into a war zone, just like their hell-like homelands.

          • 李冠毅

            Okay, I’m not a good translator, but our conversation was something like this.

            Light from the East believes Muslims are a violent group, which I don’t agree. I responded with the fact that China’s Muslim population (the Hui people) haven’t been causing much trouble for China. LFTE responded that the Hui have been living with Hans for a very long time, so they are accustomed to Han Chinese culture; (s)he was talking about Muslims from the Middle East, and asked me to imagine China importing them like Sweden did. My response was, no thanks, China already has a sizable Black community, there is no need for more non-Han immigrants.

    i know one non-practicing Persian/Muslim grad student at UC. I know an older Persian who owns a local store here. They couldn’t be nicer. I have no complaints about them…I wish they were all like that.

  • I understand that Swedes pay such high taxes for formerly excellent public services that no one can afford private schools to get away from dangerous schools. Furthermore I read that the Swedish government forces all idyllic towns that have not done their share in accomodating refugees to do so. So no place to flee any more.

  • There is something fishy and unexplained: Why was the other school closed? Students brought problems with them!? Maybe it was total immigrant mayhem, and they thought if they diluted the thugs with some native Swedes things would become better?

    Anyone has the explanation?

      Because of Malmös dire financial straits, I live in Malmö and I am a part time politcian in one of the 5 borroughs and this fiscal year we will go back 30 million skr and that is a lot, the same as it was for 2014 and that is also projected for 2016. Our cost in Malmö total for Welfare is Close to one billion per year. Our biggest cost in this borrough is the so called structural homelessness which means newly arrived “immigrants” which have to be housed and since there are no flats for them we are talking hotels and other high cost living arrangements and this never stops.

    Eventually, the problem will solve itself. The Mohammeds will violently turn on the white liberals, which will force law enforcement to restore order, despite the objections of the government delivering the deadly dosages of diversity.

    I’m beginning to think the best remedy for this mess we’re all pulling out hair out trying to think of solutions for is just to let it play out. We’re smart enough to avoid the Mohammeds, the Latinas, and the Joses with facial tattoos. White liberals are not unless they’re very wealthy. Let diversity swallow the multicultists whole until they start jumping back to the side of reason.

    Meanwhile prepare your mind and body for hardship.
