Little support for 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.
