Fewer participants in folk high schools during the pandemic


Before the covid-19 pandemic, short courses in folk high schools had the largest number of participants, but the number decreased drastically during 2020. The number rose again during 2021, but not to the same level as before the pandemic. The number of participants in general and special courses decreased as well, but not as much as short courses.
