The professional level of Primary Schools in Denmark needs raising in order for Denmark to maintain and leverage on its position in a fast-moving and competitive global-economy. Here there is broad consensus.
How we achieve this, is much less clear and the subject of considerable debate.
Experts, teachers, head-teachers, and parents have argued over years, and in general terms, these may be divided in two trains of thought:
Those who believe that more discipline is required, and that stronger class management, and a tighter consequence pedagogy are the way to more skilled students. And those who believe that increased student involvement, visible-learning and motivational-teaching are the way to go if students are to become more capable.

In four documentary programs we investigate whether Carrot or Stick is needed in the Danish Primary School.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
