(Education, 2011) Thus working towards development of individuals who will be able to make rational carries and higher education choices, and not be influenced by their sexual identity. It is important taking into context ILO's observation on Sweden's labour market, which claims it to be the most gender segregated. (Andersson, 2012, December 28) Gender equality is an important part of Swedish education system, in the following paragraphs particular attention has been given to compulsory school system.The compulsory school education envisages for providing compulsory nine years of school education to children aged between 7 and 16 years, although children have the right to begin their compulsory education from age 6 or in special cases at the age of 8. (school, 2011) They are all co-educational. Presently the compulsory school education is regulated by Education Act of 1985 and the subsequent amendments.The curriculum of compulsory school envisions for an equivalent education, based on individual's circumstances and needs. Towards this end pupil's background, earlier experiences, language and knowledge are given due consideration. Schools are encouraged to make deliberate attempt towards ensuring equal rights for all, irrespective of gender. For example the perception of gender differences are constructed through the ways in which male and female pupils are treated and assessed and expectations placed on them. Here in lays the primary responsibility with the schools to act against such moves which result in building of perception of gender differences. (Curriculum for the compulsory school) Thus the schools are expected to act against the traditional gender roles, and thus enable the pupil to develop their own abilities and interest which doesn't takes account of their sexual identity.
