“If students just transfer, they will end up in a direction where they may only learn half a subject,” said the minister. If the students do their best, they will end up in an academic direction. academic direction. At the career and academic highways, the differences will clearly be eliminated, she said.

It is important for the parents to know that the profession main road is not intended for the ‘stupid’ children. They will not be able to follow the professions main road. The minister said that all talents will be used. There will be more options in the new educational reform. At the secondary school there will no longer be an A and B direction, Levens said.

They can move up from secondary higher education. The academic main road means that students start at primary school, go to secondary school, then secondary school and finally be able to continue on to university.
