Equal opportunities in education

In Amsterdam, equality is high on the agenda. That is why the municipality is investing in individual guidance and support, because: for children who receive less at home, more is needed at school. But the city will mainly focus on tackling the system that promotes inequality. Alderman Marjolein Moorman: “Children are now selected at the age of 11 or 12 at an educational level. This is disastrous for children with a language delay or a difficult home situation. Moreover, this early selection ensures that students are no longer in the classroom with children with a different educational level from a very young age. That is a bad development for all students.”

In this collection you will find articles on equal opportunities in education.
