Foreign Children an Increasing Problem for Schools

Elementary schools have great difficulty coping with children who either hardly speak Dutch or not at all.  These difficulties result in part from the new flood of refugees from Syria, Somalia and Eritrea, but also from children from Eastern Europe.  The teaching material available often dates from the 1980s.  Government subsidies can only be obtained if a school has at least 4 pupils who are less than one year in the country.
