Those ama's that have been over the week have looked quit fun. As there have also been some discussions about education and I am educator so I thought it could be quit fun to make an ama. Take note that I am danish. So I come from a different education system, but I know quit a bit about the theory.

I have been on the forum and site for quit some time, though I mainly just lurk.

After I had finished my secondary education and before I started on the university I voluentered for the army and had a single tour to Afghanistan."When I came home I took a degree in mathematics and statistics. Worked a few months as a derivative optimizer. Then I quit and took a heavy lifting job. After a year I returned to school and became a teacher. Since then I have done quit a few things like started a school in Greenland, run some informations programs about third world countries and being a teacher for kids of many different ages.

I have been a member of DSU (A youth party for the main socialist party in Denmark) for almost 10 years, but I am not that active.

Most of the stuff I do is done together with my girlfriend who got polycystic kidney disease, with some nasty complications, some years ago.

I will answear the best I can, so just ask away.

I think you mean the best party ;)

Because I belive in the socialdemocratic values and that they are the better party to run the country, though I would be ready to vote on a good liberal party whos maim aims where to decentralize and remove some of the many regulations.

They run Denmark worse than anyone imagined. Even the leftist radicals who elected them into government are now radical in their regrets of supporting such a failed leadership.

Liberal Alliance is possibly the best party thus far. Lower taxes, fees, less regulations, letting people live their lives how they want -- this is the classic liberalism Denmark needs.

I don't regret voting on them. Some does, but that is how it is for each and every goverment. In the school world we can see and feel that the politicians are slowly starting to listen to the educators again, before they change laws conserning the education system etc.

Problem here is that LA is mainly supported by the industri and that to such strong degree that I doubt they have interrests in the well being of the average dane.

I don't know what improvement you're talking about. Surely it does not stretch to the economy.

That's plain rhetoric. The Danes are well-off. They don't need more welfare, higher taxes, or any nonsensical policies that the left try to implement. The current government has cracked on all income-levels and raised taxes -- to whose benefit? To the non-existing poor people?

See the drastic increase for yourself. http://torstenschack.dk...

No, they more or less follow the old goverments economic politics. There are some differences, but they are few, small and all about pleacing their support groups. The big difference for me is that we have broader coallitions behind many important laws and that politicians seems to slowly start listening to people again.

I have no idea what your going on about here. I am saying that I really like LA. They have many good ideas and do much good. But their campaigns and the party is mostly funded by the industri and big corporations and I don't like that. It makes me question their loyality to the common people.

What are your best memories from Greenland?

Christmas ^_^

The school we started an efterskole. It is kind of a boarding school, but with more focus on the social side. Christmas is also a very big thing in Greenland. So everytime time I had evening shifts during the december I was sitting in the teachers office with 10-15 students, making christmas hearts, eating christmas cookies and listening to christmas music. That was very nice.

And the day before people started to go home on christmas vacation we got a christmas tree and I got to dress out as Santa and give out presents.

Did you see combat in afghanistan? What were some of the observations you brought back about the country?

Yes I did. What made the most impression on me was how destroyed the country is. Not only physical from fighting, but also in trust, spirit and the land itself. You end up thinking what it will take to bring your own country to that point.

The difference is that the old government was capable of maintaining a great economy through 10 years, as well as help create jobs. Have you heard of the latest news on acute jobs status that was promised by the prime minister? Don't tell me that's a good sign for them.

I have no idea what your going on about here.
The liberal party can either care or not care about the citizens. The fact is, if it stands by its ideology, things will be ultimately good for everyone. Leftist policies require politicians to care -- right-wing policies merely need to be implemented.

I am saying that I really like LA. They have many good ideas and do much good. But their campaigns and the party is mostly funded by the industri and big corporations and I don't like that. It makes me question their loyality to the common people.
Because they are funded by job-creators, that means their loyalty should be questioned?

The old goverment came to power in 2001. The problems started in 2007 and because the goverment acted to slow it hit us hard in 2008. It is not hard to have a good economy when the world econemy is having a growth periode.

I don't think many people will see that as a fact.

You should always question and think about where each party have their loyality.

Excuse me -- what growth period? Denmark fared particularly well during the financial crisis, and what exactly would the party you support have done better? Things seem to be better now than back in '08, yet the prime minister can hardly create 100 jobs out of the thousands she promised! Such incompetency. Even the radical communists don't seem to like her anymore.
