No schools fined after new school law

Not one school has been fined in the three-and-a-half years since the new school law came into effect, Swedish Radio News reports. 

Since 2011, the Swedish School Inspectorate has issued conditional fines for 49 schools, but not one of them have actually had to pay up.

In 2011, when the school law changed, the School Inspectorate was given more authority to use conditional fines to force schools to take action if they had received a complaint.

The Inspectorate may fine a school if it hires unqualified teachers or if they don't follow the curriculum.

The Inspectorate says to Swedish Radio News that's because most of the schools have taken action after having received the conditional fine, and that a few have appealed their decision.
