Johannes Rudbeckius
BISHOP JOHANNES RUDBECKIUS or Bishop Johannes Rudbeck (1581–1646), bishop at Västerås , Sweden , from 1619 until his death, and personal chaplain to King Gustavus II Adolphus ("the Great").

In 1623 he founded the first gymnasium , a school of secondary education , in Västerås, but he also took care to introduce a rough kind of compulsory schooling for all children in his diocese. He also founded the first school for girls in Sweden; Rudbeckii flickskola in 1632. Rudbeckius was considered politically suspect by his superiors but his reforms were gradually introduced in the whole country. With his second wife Magdalena Hising, he had a son Olaus Rudbeckius, Sr. , who was to become the most important Swedish scientist of the 17th century

Kjellbergska Flickskolan
KJELLBERGSKA FLICKSKOLAN ('Kjellberg Girl School') was a Girls\' School in Gothenburg in Sweden active between 1835 and 1967. HISTORYThe 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

It was founded in the city of Västerås by the Bishop of Västerås, Johannes Rudbeckius in 1632. Johannes Rudbeckius had founded the first Gymnasium (school) for males in 1623. He had the opinion that females should also be given education, and therefore founded a girl school in 1632. The law had already in 1575 stated the girls should receive schooling, but it had left the responsibility to provide schools for them to the responsibility of the local authorities and city, and in reality no schools had been founded, and this school was thereby the first implement of the law. The school was publicly financed and mainly received students from the poor classes and orphans. It was ignited with references to the education the biblical Susanna
