Read about the types of schools, their history and structure.
Denmark has a tradition of private schools with a substantial government subsidy.
All that is demanded of private education is that it measures up to that of the municipal schools.
The private schools receive a grant ("per pupil per year") for their operational expenditures.
There are about 20 such schools, and they cater for 6% of all upper secondary school pupils.
In Denmark there are 26 international basic schools.
