Abstract:The Scandinavian countries — Norway, Sweden, and Denmark — have small populations compared with this country and their educational systems, therefore, tend not to be so diversified as our own. The relationship between what we call secondary and further education is much closer than in England and indeed at times can scarcely be distinguished. Any appreciation of further education, therefore, requires an understanding of the educational system as a whole. The Scandinavian countries, moreover, work in fairly close contact and there are close parallels between their educational systems. Reforms, however, are at present taking place over a number of years and it is convenient to deal initially with Denmark.
