Danish Minister for Education, Merete Riisager, says to Danish TV2 that for the school year 2017/18, as a pilot scheme it will be possible for gymnasiums (schools) in the city of Aarhus to divide school classes by ethnicity.
The background is an overly difficult coexistence of students in classes, which Langkær Gymnaium, to strong criticism, has tried to deal with in this way, not to lose their last Danish students.
From 2007 to 2016, the percentage of pupils with Danish origin at the school, decreased from 80 percent to 25 percent.
The minister's diagnosis is clear:
- They have such great educational challenges and clashes of culture that they can not fix it themselves.
- Of course, one should not divide by hair color, and of course ethnicity is not a problem in itself. But there are some clashes of culture, where the students can not come to terms with each other, and I think that one must be honest about it, she said of the pilot scheme, and stresses that it alone can not solve the integration problems in gymnasiums.
Riisager formulates herself in a way that suggests that the pilot project could become more than just locally in Aarhus:
- The idea is that other colleges can subsequently learn from the pilot scheme. When in the future we need to look at what the admission criteria should be, we can use the experiences from Aarhus. Both the good and the bad.
Culture clashes between ethnic groups in schools that are so serious that they require separation of students, pretty much sums up the failed national integration policies, and is evidence of the collapse of the multicultural-society-project once and for all, because the future is seen in our schools, and they are a mess.
