Leeflang: “Minister Dick is a danger to our education”
WILLEMSTAD – “Minister Irene Dick is a threat to our education.” This is according to Independent Member of Parliament, Omayra Leeflang. The MP says that she does not agree with the solo action of Dick to ignore the stringent test requirements applicable in the Netherlands. Leeflang believes it to be “deeply sad” that Dick hides behind a “victim story about the native language of the students here in Curaçao”.
“The victim story of Minister Dick that the native language of the students here is not Dutch, and therefore the high school requirements should be reduced, it is really very sad,” said Leeflang. The decision of the minister caused a lot of indignant reactions about the quality of education on the island.
