Secondary schools advise student after two years on educational
Schools in secondary education, all pupils after two years of giving advice about their level of education.
This is the eindadvies that the elementary school is given a less determining factor in the school career of a pupil.
Paul Going of the VO-council, the umbrella organisation of secondary schools, the plan mentions in Faith, “one of the answers to the kansenongelijkheid in education”.
“The schooladvies should say something about the start of high school and not serve as a forecast of what degree you’re eventually going to get,” says Going. “It seems to us so logical after two years of a new moment in which you all discuss: where do you stand now?”
The plan is a response to the Inspectorate of Education in the spring of 2016, and warned that the inequality between children of higher and lageropgeleiden to grow and that students with low-skilled parents get fewer opportunities in education.
“We realized that there are unintended elements in the educational system have crept for inequality concerns”, says Going.
The advice in the second year this means according to the chairman of the PE board that the school system in some secondary schools will have to be adapted, so that children after the second year of education can change. He expects that in some schools “a few years”.
The General Onderwijsbond says in a response to NU.nl a positive attitude towards the plan of Going. “In many schools this is already happening. We go about this will be happy to talk with mr. Going on.”
