Excerpt

Schools which do not reach the same stage of attainment as do the Universities and Colleges are, as a rule, divided into two main groups, the elementary schools and the secondary schools, approximately corresponding to what in Sweden are schools for children and schools for young people. To the former category belong Elementary and Continuation Schools, to the latter, State Secondary Schools especially, and those Communal and Private Schools which aim at the same standard of instruction as the State Schools. These institutions grouped under one common name, might be called the Higher Educational Establishments. But there is still another large category of educational institutions of which some belong to the grade of the Elementary Schools, others to that of the Secondary, and they include the practical schools for young people in their most comprehensive sense.

The following survey includes these three groups of scholastic establishments and those institutions are mentioned at which teachers are trained for the various kinds of schools.

The foundation of the entire school system which comprises the Swedish public instruction is the Elementary or primary School. Upon this school are built not only the Higher Secondary theoretical schools among which the State Secondary Schools occupy the central position, but also the practical schools on the secondary stage. From these two main groups of schools the way leads to the University and to institutions which afford higher vocational training of various kinds.
