Conservative Representatives support voluntary 11th school year

Mathilde Tybring-Gjedde and Saida Begum from the Conservatives (Høyre) believe other municipalities should follow Drammen’s example and offer students an 11th school year before starting on their secondary education.


Tybring-Gjedde and Begum, who are parliamentary representative and city council member in Oslo respectively, writes this in a chronicle published by Aftenposten.

As the first municipality in the country, Drammen this year chose to offer 16-year-olds another year in school before proceeding to a high school.

– Some brave students who do not feel prepared for high school for various reasons, get a tailored and more individually adapted education, the Conservative politicians state.

Denmark as well

In Denmark there is also a similar offer. Tybring-Gjedde and Begum believe the project can help students who, for various reasons, are not mature enough to enter high school directly.

– They are in dire need of an alternative educational program in order to enhance motivation, self-esteem and basic skills, they write in the chronicle.
