Norrbotten is a county of many nationalities. There are 200 children with the right to mother-tongue teaching in 91 different languages. Norrbotten’s municipalities work to coordinate mother-tongue teaching between schools and municipalities, to create sufficiently large groups and offer qualified teachers in all the languages. This leads to all the school units having access to the same choice of education and to more pupils being able to develop their bilingual identity and skills.
