Weakening interest to start lay private schools in SwedenTuesday, 13 March 2012
It was the dream for many so called education entrepreneurs to start their own school and cash easily from the government based on the amount of students they have.
Things have changed now and that interest has dissipated as it turns out that there is more work in making it in the sector than previously thought.
As such interest in starting private school has cooled off. The Swedish Schools Inspectorate (Skolinspektionens) which receives and approved applications for school start ups has received 364 applications in this year. This compares with 800 last year, according to their final compilation.
Not least, the numbers of applications from the major education companies have dipped sharply. Schools Inspectorate suggests several explanations for the decline, such as tougher requirements from the Education Act, shrinking students, uncertain economic conditions and a debate about the gains in independent schools.
