A woman who refused to send her daughter to school at the start of the pandemic must appear in Oslo District Court on Tuesday because she refuses to pay the fine for violating the Education Act.

The woman in her 40s was fined NOK 8,000 for not refusing to send her daughter to school between March and October 2020.

Keeping a student away from statutory education is a violation of the Education Act, and the woman risks a prison sentence of 16 days if she does not pay the fine.

On March 12, 2020, the country’s schools closed for physical education and switched to the “school from home.” 

One and a half months later, the schools physically reopened for pupils from the 1st to 4th grade, while the other grades returned to the school desks in mid-May of the same year.
