Danish kids don’t know how to swim

57 percent of Danish kids have never had any kind of formal swimming instructions, according to a study released by Børneulykkesfonden (Children’s Accident Foundation). The municipalities decide if swimming shall be part of the physical education in schools, but still parent expect their kids to automatically learn to swim there. Michael Aller chairman of RÃ¥det for Større Badesikkerhed (Council of Greater Swimming Safety) has difficulties with understanding this, for as he says, if you don’t learn English, German og French, you can always learn it later, but if you don’t learn to swim, you can drown.
