If the minister for children and education Pernille Rosary-Theil (S) wants to follow his expert recommendation and put the national tests in primary schools in abeyance, so she has the support of both the radicals and SF.

It tells the parties, after the advisory group has worked to evaluate the national tests and ago 2018, has come up with their recommendations and results.
- We would like to get a system that can be used as a pedagogical tool in teaching. Until we have it, so I think we should put it in abeyance, says skoleordfører for the Radical Left Marianne Effect.
The position to share SF's undervisningsordfører, Jacob Mark:
- clearly, We believe that the national tests must be put in abeyance. And it must be done as soon as possible for the schools to make the tests just a little.
- And the evaluation shows quite clearly that it is not a useful tool. So it will be a waste of time to implement it.
the Evaluation shows, that the tests are unsafe, when it comes to test students ' academic level, and they do not always have a clear correlation with the primary purpose.
The Conservatives, who are a part of the folkeskoleforliget, are less willing to put the tests on hold.
- It depends on what the framework should be. Both how long and under what circumstances they are being put on hold. But basically I lean to that they are not being put on hold, says grundskoleordfører for The Conservative Mai Mercado and continues:
- Now we go into an open discussion. The evaluation clearly shows that there is a need for a test system. So the whole discussion about whether we should test or not, must now be obsolete.
the Danish people's Party, which also is part of the folkeskoleforliget, wrinkles also on my eyebrows, when it comes to putting the tests in abeyance.
- we are not immediately. The evaluation clearly shows that there is a need to do something. But we are worried if we put them in the hold, when we put them in again? We should very quickly be able to put something else in its place.
- We want the test continues, says the Danish people's party vikarierende undervisningsordfører Jens Henrik Thulesen Dahl.
It is SF totally disagree with.
- SF is opposed to the national test, but it was a part of the folkeskolereformen, as we were with the in. It was horribly stupid that it was so much a part of the reform.
- We do not believe that the national test should be longer. First, they must be put in abeyance, and so they must be abolished, if you ask us, says Jacob Mark.
The Radical is not, as such, against the test, as long as they can be used pedagogically.
- If we can get some test that can be used as an educational tool, so we think it is a good idea, says Marianne Effect.
