The education crisis claimed another victim in Amsterdam with the announcement that the primary education provider Linnaeusschool will shut down at the end of the school year. The Amsterdam Oost school will close because of a combination too few teachers on staff, and too few pupils in the classrooms, the parent organization STAIJ told the Parool.
Two elementary schools in Amsterdam Zuid, each with predominately darker-skinned students, are planning to send their pupils on the streets of Amsterdam wearing bright white t-shirts with the slogan, "Is this white enough for you?" written on them. The blunt message is meant to raise awareness for the schools, while encouraging more white parents to enroll their children at the two locations.
