"People rolled up their sleeves and got things done. The situation was strained, absolutely, but not chaotic. People took the matter seriously and worked hard to solve it in the best way possible," said Anna Österlund, head of her department at the education agency.
At the start of 2016, the education agency began a special cooperative effort to support the municipalities that had received a particularly high number of new students. Now, this effort is coming to a close, as the acute situation is over.
