Why are you a board member at Teach for Sweden?

”The reason I started this journey with Teach for Sweden is to be able to help even in a small way and contribute to the positive development for students. From the beginning it has been a business case, the cost for society if a person does not graduate from high school is 1.5 million Euros. If they do graduate the case is flipped and you have a positive return and contribution to society. We have succeeded if we can be a catalyst for these students to graduate from high school.”
