How many days are children required to go to school in Finland?
5 days a week (from Monday to Friday) and about 190 days in a year.
Schools are required to be in class a certain number of hours a year. In Texas we have 175 days in a year. If you choose to be absent a couple of days it really depends on how much you can make up before the end of the school year. My children did not have problems making up work because they were only absent 4 or 5 days in total for the entire year.
School would have to go later in the afternoon. The state sets the time and minutes and number of days for a school year. If a school has less than the required number of minutes or days it goes longer. That's why when you have snow days or foggy days that they are made up at some point in the school year.
