Hi,

I am Master student here, in Sweden, arrived in the beginning of August with my family - my husband and my 8-years old son. I am on student visa, they are accompanying me during all my studies.
The point is that I got refusal to accept my child in public school here. In my visa application I stated that I'm planning to accept him to school and my husband is helping me to take care of him. Visas were approved, so I thought everything is fine. But...

I'm not sure that I should firstly say that in Nassjo, where we live right now, there is a line of more than 50 kids, who need special immigrant classes (since they don't speak Swedish). My son doesn't speak Swedish as well. But "barn och utbildning" workers even don't allow him to turn on in this line! The reason is that my son hasn't personnumer and even coordination number. My program is less than 1 year and we are not able to get these numbers.

So, now my child has to stay at home for all this year. Is that really legal reason to refuse him to be accepted to school? I how no idea, who can help me and what should I do...anybody?

You are out of luck. Sweden is really not a place for foreign family. If I were you, I would back and leave. The quality of education you can get is not something worth paying for. They will disrespect you and your family based on the fact that some of you don't have personal number. You will be treated as second class resident. The hardest part will be really the harm that they will cause to your kid.

I really wish you all the best, but that just cannot happen in Sweden in your situation (kid without personal number).

If you have any faith in Sweden (don't put too much hope there, because you will be disappointed) you can contact the: https://www.barnombudsmannen.se/ they are dealing with such things. But since it is in Sweden, they will treat you with a lot of condescending remarks and not much respect.

I really hope that you will find a exit point to your nightmare situation (i.e. think outside Sweden).

thank you for the reply. I am so much agree with the statement that "you are literally nobody if you haven't swedish personal number". Sad, but true...

I resolved my situation by accepting him in homeschool organized from my native country. But still hope to solve it somehow here, since I have intention to stay here to live and don't really want to lost my son's school years and development opportunities

Don't tell anyone that! NO ONE. I will put my thin foil hat here and point you in that direction:

For the love you have for your son. Be careful, really careful. You are in an awful place, without moral, without ethics. Don't put your family at risk.

Hey OP!

Don't listen to this negative Nelly. You can tell by the way he can not express himself in his own native language, that his faculties are somewhat lacking.

Hey Wallace! The expression is TIN foil hat, you nincompoop. Just about every sentence you write has errors. Why is it so?

OP, I can not help you with your issue. There are no doubt proper people that can chime in and assist. I am sorry you got off to a bad start.

I agree with you. Wallace should just pack his bags and bugger off. The OP will not get any correct replies on this site. They need to speak to an expert as most other posters should do.

I would contact Skolverket and ask what rights your kid has.
I know that "paperless" migrants have the right to go to school. https://www.skolverket.se/regelverk/mer-om-...a-barn-1.205221
Of course, this is a different situation but the similar point is the lack of personnummer.
