Children in women's shelters often forego education

Published måndag 25 oktober 2010 kl 10.00
When schools, social services and women's shelters cooperate poorly, children óften do not receive schooling.

Children who live with their mothers in Swedish women's shelters often do not get school instruction, something that is their right.

Swedish Radio news reports that according to information from more than 30 women's shelters across the country, at least 25 children are not going to school, compared to 50 who have been able to attend.

The problem happens in districts where schools and social services do not have good cooperation with the shelters. Under these circumstances, children often do not receive schooling.

The school commissioner in Stockholm, Lotta Edholm, told Swedish Radio news that there is no excuse for this. She said that ultimately, it is up to the district and the school to make sure the child is receiving the education that is their right.
