Private schools more popular

Some 2,700 Dutch children are now being educated at private schools, up from 1,700 a year ago, says sociologist Don Weenink in today’s Trouw.

Children are usually placed at private schools, where the fees range from €12,000 to €26,000 a year, because of learning or behavioural problems, Weenink said.
