Kristina Featherstone DD/MM/YYYY

Christine Antorini was Denmark's Minister of Education for the Social Democrat Party from 2011 to 2015. During her term, the government forged a six-party coalition and launched a major national education reform. The reforms featured a longer and more varied school day; a focus on literacy, mathematics, and STEM; regular movement and sport activity time; and flexible support time for teachers. The reform also garnered strong teacher union opposition.
