Expansion of new schools for Ukrainian children • Re-established escape routes

Weirsma, the Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, wants to rapidly expand the number of so-called new schools in the coming weeks. Children from Ukraine mainly go to these special schools, not for regular education.

In the new schools, children who “suffered the same fate” receive Dutch lessons from day one and focus on what they did. That is why, according to Weirsma, these schools are more suitable for Ukrainian refugees than regular schools.

Wiersma said on the WNL television program that it would like to expand the number of classes in existing schools and, if necessary, set up new temporary educational facilities.

A makeshift school, especially for Ukrainian refugees, will open next week in De Harskamp, ​​Ede. For example, this also applies to older students who want to write the exam this year. Work is now underway on a makeshift school for Ukrainians in Amsterdam and Arnhem.

15,000 to 25,000 Ukrainian children are expected to come to the Netherlands. Wiersma takes into account that they should at least take care of themselves until the summer holidays. But that can take longer. “We do not know,” he said. Generally, children from new schools go to regular education after one or two years.
