Primary and lower secondary education is based on the principle of an equal and adapted education for all in an inclusive comprehensive school.
The local authorities fund primary and lower secondary education and have a great deal of freedom when it comes to organising the education. Compulsory schooling in Norway lasts for ten years, and the children start school the year they turn six.
Municipal schools in Trondheim are free, while Private and International schools charge fees.
