More Applications to Start Independent Schools

Published fredag 25 april 2008 kl 12.09

Despite the fact that a growing number of Swedes are reserved when it comes to independent schools, the actual amount of applications to start such schools has risen to a new high.

As Swedish Radio news reports, the Swedish National Agency for Education has received 560 applications this year – with the brunt coming from the Stockholm area.

On Wednesday, Gothenburg’s university released a study saying that an increasing amount of Swedes would welcome it if the state froze its subsidies for independent schools.

As of today, 9 percent of Sweden’s elementary schools are independent. With 17 percent, the amount is even higher among high schools.
