A school forgot to teach a required course.
Everyone makes mistakes, and in the case of one Swedish school theirs means that seniors might not graduate.
The powers that be neglected to add a mandated religion class to the curriculum.
According to the administration, they were confused by the wording of the country’s law and believed that they could substitute the class with something else.
That has turned out to not be the case.
Needless to say the students are outraged, especially since they brought the matter to teachers’ attention a while back.
Said one student, “They said that we had social science instead so I thought that stuff about Buddhism and everything would come then, but it never did."
At this point their choices are to complete the yearlong course in a week or to take a failing grade and return in the fall to fix it.
In Sweden high school lasts three years and is optional. Students are only required to attend classes between the ages of 7 and 16.
The majority take the option, but those electing not to go can pursue other educational programs designed to fit their needs.
