Grades too low for further education

More Swedish children finish school without the grades they need to qualify for further education.

The four worst performing schools are all in areas with high poverty, high unemployment, and a large number of recently arrived refugees, and the situation there has got dramatically worse in the last ten years.

In 2001 43 per cent of the pupils at Rosengårdsskolan in Malmö left with good enough grades. Today the proportion is just 28 per cent.
