Former Teacher: Students’ Terror Led to Closure of Gouda School

After nine years a former teacher has disclosed that his school in the troubled town of Gouda was closed because of terror. Even now the teacher has requested to remain anonymous. Students of Delta College, on the way to school, had been forced by other students to give up money and other belongings, there was drug trade during breaks and the home of the school director was marked with graffiti of swastikas and Stars of David. Within the school wallets were stolen, students returned to class after breaks with goods which had probably been stolen from shops in the neighborhood. As a result, neighborhood shops refused to allow students into the stores. The social services always protected these criminal students who were mainly of Moroccan descent. Retired teachers left the town. There was no one willing to report on these crimes at the time. The school was finally closed in the year 2000.
