The bill contains proposals for amendments to the Education Act (2010:800) which relate partly to the upper secondary school, partly to the upper secondary school (from 2 July 2023 called adapted upper secondary school), which is a form of school for people with an intellectual disability or an acquired brain injury.
It is also proposed to correct the name of the document that a student must receive after completing an education in an adapted upper secondary school in the Education Act. The document must be called upper secondary school certificate regarding adapted upper secondary school.
The bill also contains proposals for changes to the procedural code, which means that the now obsolete regulations on public interpreters must be removed.
The changes in the Education Act are proposed to enter into force on 1 January 2024. The proposal on national minority languages is proposed to be applied to education that begins after 30 June 2025. Older provisions are proposed to apply to education that has begun before 1 July 2025.
The amendments to the Code of Judicial Procedure are proposed to enter into force on 1 January 2024.
