Nearly one million students: what that means for schools


Around one million schoolchildren are expected for the first time: this means growth for Swiss schools

The increasing number of pupils is causing schools to stop: above all, the lack of teachers and the shortage of school space are presenting municipalities and cantons with major challenges. An overview.

The new school year begins on Monday in various cantons.

In the first few cantons, the time has come as early as Monday, in others the children have to wait a little longer before they can set off to school – equipped with backpacks and morning snacks. A special day for many children, parents and teachers.
