They even regulate birthday card distribution in Sweden...
Geez, do schools really have to regulate birthday card distribution???
A second grader in Lund in southern Sweden was forced to take back his birthday party invitations because he hadn’t invited all the students in his class.
Two students were left off the invitation list, prompting the boy’s teacher to confiscate all the invitations, reports the Sydsvenskan newspaper.
The boy’s father has filed a complaint with Sweden’s Ombudsman of Justice (JO), which is now looking into the matter.
“We think it’s an interesting case,” said JO’s Carl-Gustaf Tyrblom to Sydsvenskan.
According to school rules, if a student plans to distribute invitations on school grounds, he or she must invite the entire class, or none at all.
Alternatively, invitations can be sent to all the boys, or all the girls, but simply leaving two students out is not acceptable.
