Dictionary of Dutchness


Pabo stands for pedagogische academie voor het basisonderwijs and is the name given to teacher training colleges specialising in primary education. Students must have at least a havo high school diploma to be admitted and the course takes four years. For the last few years, Pabo students have been under fire for poor standards in maths and the Dutch language and efforts are being made to toughen up the admission process.
