What can you expect today?
The ultimatum that the province of Flevoland has issued to Almere regarding the housing of hundreds of status holders has expired. If Almere does not come up with an action plan, the province itself will start a procedure to designate homes. To herald the Commemoration Year of Slavery History, the National Institute of Dutch Slavery History and Heritage (NiNsee) is organizing a symposium in Utrecht. There are various international speakers during the program, including Minister Dijkgraaf (Education, Culture and Science). Today it is 75 years ago that Cobra was founded, a very revolutionary art movement at the time. A major retrospective is opening in the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen.
What did you miss?
Parent, student and educational organizations want the voluntary parental contribution in primary education to be abolished. In a letter to the House of Representatives, they write that the current system leads to inequality. They believe that the government should pay for the activities.
The parent contribution is intended for activities outside of the lessons. Because the contribution is voluntary, one school receives more money than the other. The organizations also believe that not only textbooks should be free in secondary education, but also digital teaching aids such as laptops.
