I want to be Swedish

In Sweden, any group of people can set up a school – for-profit, charitable, faith-based, co-operative – and receive funding from the state. Like Australian Public Schools, these schools, known as friskolor, are free to parents and are non-selective up to the age of 16. They are independently owned and managed: able to hire their own staff, choose their own teaching methods and manage their assets. Although students are required to take several national exams, schools are given significant independence over the content of lessons and any additional qualifications that their students work towards.
