All pupils in secondary special education will soon also get a diploma at the end of their school career. Minister Arie Slob for Primary and Secondary Education wants to give these pupils more recognition and therefore submitted a bill to achieve it.
"All pupils deserve a reward at the end of high school", the Minister said in a statement. "That is why we are going to ensure that pupils in secondary special education now also receive a diploma." The expectation is that the first special education diplomas will be issued in the 2021/2022 school year.
