Students will help children in secondary education

Students are going to help children in primary and secondary education who have fallen behind due to the corona crisis. Universities have made agreements about this with ministers Arie Slob and Ingrid van Engelshoven. The students will receive credits for their efforts, or they earn some extras like a holiday job. The students come from teacher training and pedagogical studies. The idea is that they gain practical experience, under the responsibility of the schools, and at the same time help to limit the damage of the corona crisis for children. The Cabinet has allocated EUR 244 million for primary, secondary and vocational schools to make up for these delays caused by the corona crisis. The schools can  spend (part of) that money at universities. It is not yet clear how many students will take part, nor how much they could earn. The plans are under development. (HOP, Bas Belleman)
