Little support for flexible school starts

Government study does not believe in more flexible school starts

Kids in Sweden start school later than many other countries. They start the year they turn 7, mostly after a non-mandatory "reception" year that is supposed to serve as a soft transition from pre-school day care to proper school.

But every now and again the question comes up whether it would be better to start school earlier - or at least whether a more flexible school start should be introduced. A study commissioned by the government is however not very enthusiastic about the idea.
