Swedish schools are non-religious, and may not include prayers, blessings or worship in their activities. Pupils are supposed to be free from religious pressure. But many schools have had their end-of-year assemblies in church.
Anna Ekström, and Claes-Göran Aggebo, from the agency for education, say that the only solution is to allow schools to go to church, and allow pastors to take part in the assembly -as long as they do not say anything religious.
"It may seem contradictory, a religious festival without any religious elements", they write, "but in the light of the current law, this is the only possible solution that allows the schools to gather in church, while following the law."
