Cut Payments Don’t Increase Student Attendance

Published torsdag 7 september 2006 kl 15.06

A report from the southen Swedish city of Malmö has harpooned one of the arguments from some of the campaigning politicians for combating absence from Swedish langauge classes by immigrants and refugees.

The city says it’s already applying the suggestion of cutting off financial support for those missing classes. But Malmö authorities say there hasn’t been much of a change in the 20% absentee level since cuts were made.

  Some argue that the figure is not that high – considering that many of the foreign-born studying Swedish have troubled backgrounds colored by warfare, oppression, torture and the upheaval of fleeing into exile.
