Dictionary of Dutchness


VMBO stands for voorbereidend middelbaar beroeps onderwijs (preparatory mid-level vocational training) and is the type of secondary school 60% of the population attend. Teenagers not considered bright enough to get a degree
go to a VMBO school, but the system has been widely criticised for putting such a broad group under one roof. White middle-class parents do all they can to avoid VMBO schools for their kids.
