Kjellbergska Flickskolan
Kjellbergska flickskolan ('Kjellberg Girl School') was a Girls' School in Gothenburg in Sweden active between 1835 and 1967. History[edit] The school was founded by a fund granted in the will of the rich merchant Jonas Kjellberg (1752–1832). The stated purpose of the school was to provide education to make it possible for females to support themselves professionally. This separated the school from most other contemporary girl schools, which had the purpose to educate their students to ideal wives and mothers, and it was thereby a part of the wave of a new type of girl schools, which was established in Sweden in the mid 19th-century in response to a contemporary Swedish debate about women's education. Further more, Kjellbergska flickskolan accepted students free of charge, which made it possible to accepts just the kind of student which answered to the description: a female who would likely need to support herself, normally from the middle classes
