Our minister of educations, Marja van Bijsterveld, wants to give 300 million euro less for the education of children with special needs.
She wants larger classes in schools for special education
No more experts who help teachers in normaly schools to give pupils the education that fits!!
over 10.000 people made their protest.
We went to Nieuwegein by bus with colleagues from different schools
We arrived a bit late,inside there were already 6.000 people, and outside a lot too.
Z.m. l means very difficult learning, it is a kind of school for children who are not able to learn in a normal tempo and on a normallevel. Here the governement gets the name for it.
We could watch what happened outside on a large screen.
The money that a child gets for what we call education that fits is called backpack. Here the backpacks are empty.
These teachers say, my trousers are going down, its what we say if something is really not nice.
Between the speeches, we were ancing the polonaise on the music, this was one of the fun sides of being outside.
Ears for the deaf and bad hearing pupils.
Who wants us, ADHD and PDD-NOS.
Working all his life for disabled children and now there is no money anymore?
Education that fits yes!! Less money no!!!!
As you can see there are many people.
Eendje is a little duck, eentje means one only . The duck on the mans hat means we are not alone , je bent niet in je eentje.
We have to be creative, the minister says, I think we are already that, but without money it will not be possible to teach these children well.
We are angry!! We ask for the children, not for ourselves!
And backhome again, with hope it will help.
