Lundsberg given the "green light"

The elite Lundsberg boarding school gets the green light after the Schools Inspectorate concludes there are "no longer any indications of abuse".

According to a decision by the Inspectorate last week, the school is now deemed to live up to the legal requirements stated in the Swedish Education Act. These include providing a safe and stable study environment and demand that schools prevent abusive behaviour.

The school has been under investigation since spring 2014 for a number of shortcomings.

"Previously, we had evidence of systematic abuse, but since then we have seen the effect of a number of measures," says Peter Ekborg, department head at the Schools Inspectorate. He says that interviews with students as well as staff indicate that things are now back on track.

The school was shut down temporarily after it emerged that younger students had been burned with hot irons by older pupils as part of a hazing ritual.
