OECD: Dutch students unmotivated, classes unruly

A major study by the OECD concludes that nowhere in the world are school students as undisciplined and unmotivated as in the Netherlands.  Even good pupils show little motivation.  The Dutch education system doesn’t inspire them to make the necessary effort.  Yet the Dutch education system itself is not bad, and a relatively high number of Dutch citizens have graduated from high school.  In mathematics, natural sciences and languages, Dutch students are better than their peers but grade lower than Asians.
