As a sign of protest against climate change, Greta Thunberg skipped school every Friday to protest. This did not hurt their notes.
It is probably the most famous of the schools attended in the world. But Greta Thunberg's diploma can still be proud. Although the 16-year-old has had many absences in the last school year, Thunberg has had the highest scores in various subjects.
She had never been there on Fridays, but from Monday to Thursday, Thunberg was still in school in Sweden – and although she has been in the public eye for months. Thunberg tirelessly campaigns with his actions and his performances against climate change and for a more radical environmental policy of the states. On Fridays, however, she takes part in the school strike and participates in "Fridays for the Future" demonstrations.
High marks in 14 out of 17 subjects
Critics have accused Thunberg of turning school results into actionism. Set up a game and thus compromise their own future. But this concern seemed unfounded. Thunberg has just brilliantly finished the ninth year of Kringlaskolan at Södertälje near Stockholm.
Thunberg obtained the maximum grade "A", as the Swedish newspaper "Dagens Nyheter" writes. At the age of 16, he has excelled in mathematics, English and French, but also in physics and history. Only in Sweden, sports customers and consumers consume a rating of "B."
"It was worth it"
"I really struggled to get those results," says Greta Thunberg to the Swedish newspaper. Without the weekly strikes, his testimony would probably have been even better. But for the activist, it's clear: "But it was worth it."
Greta Thunberg is diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. Kringlaskolan is specialized in teenagers with such a diagnosis or a similar diagnosis. The school had always supported Thunberg's actions in the past. Before the start of the summer holidays, Kringlaskolan even paid tribute to Thunberg for his efforts in the fight against global warming.
A year outside of school
For a year, Thunberg now wants to leave school and fully focus on the climate protests. Participation includes attendance at the United Nations Climate Change Summit in New York in September and at the World Conference on Climate Change in Santiago de Chile in December. It was not until the school year 2020/21 that Thunberg wanted to continue his studies, then in a high school. (Cat)
