Hague: 'no' to Islamic high school

There won't be an Islamic school network in The Hague. The Council of State denied Wednesday a request by the Association for Islamic secondary eduction "Ibn Ghaldoun".

According ot the Council, minister of Education at the time Maria van der Hoeven rightly refused to add the association to the "plan of schools". the minister said that based on a prognosis there was no need for an Islamic school network for secondary education in the Hague.

Ibn Ghaldoun said that the minister had deviated from a fixed policy in this case. The Council of State considered the minister's arguments to be adequately motivated.

Being added to the "plan of schools" means that the school will be considered for subsidy by the government. Islamic school networks exist in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
