Primary schools will now have three instead of two weeks to administer the progression test. The extra week allows students to participate in “important cultural traditions” such as carnival.
Outgoing Minister Paul of Education writes in a letter to the House of Representatives that she wants to meet the “ardent wish” in the south of the country in particular.
The progression test, which will replace the primary education final test (the former Cito test) from next year, is scheduled for the first weeks of February. The test week coincides with the carnival period, which starts on February 11, and in schools usually on February 8.
Paul says in her letter that it is important that children can take the progression test on time. “At the same time, as a native of Brabant, I understand very well that children in the south in particular want to enjoy the beautiful carnival. That is part of their identity.”
