Thank you C.
The translator also left this relevant comment about the situation in this, and all Dutch schools.
The Dutch ministry of education sends inspectors to schools and write up yearly reports. This school simply refused to let them in, apparently they can do that.
The mayor sent the school head an invitation to city hall, he drew a middle finger on it and sent it back. He doesn’t give a sh!t.
He gave an interview yesterday, says he’s taking revenge on the mayor, and Amsterdam’s other schools, by recruiting their pupils. He’s going to bribe the parents with free stuff, bikes, electronics etc. Schools have a gentlemen’s agreement to not snipe each others pupils mid-year, again he doesn’t give a f*ck. He says he hopes he can screw with their planning enough to get them in financial trouble (hiring too many teachers).
The city doesn’t have the authority to close the school, that’s national government business. Politicians are posturing but I haven’t heard of concrete measures.
Schools have very strong legal protection, and the intelligence can’t be used in court. I’m not a legal expert, but I suspect the government will have to file all incidents until they have built a case. Until then, the taxpayer is funding this subversion.
