On Monday night I went to an information session for parents of children starting school in Morges next year. It was all in French, so I probably missed a bit, but I don't think much was discussed that I hadn't already heard. There was a PowerPoint presentation that made it easy to follow along.
I think the main thing I learned was that in Vaud there are only 9 years of mandatory schooling. The 1st two years aren't mandatory, which means that kids are usually finished around age 16.
