08.10 – Quality of MBO is suffering a lot
The quality of education in secondary vocational education (MBO) is severely affected by the corona crisis. “We are falling through the ice”, says chairman Adnan Tekin of the MBO Council in Trouw. It is often difficult to keep your distance in practical subjects, such as cooking, greenery and animal care or technology. “The heart of MBO is practical education. That is why it is so bitter that we can provide 30 percent physical education”, says Tekin. Another problem is the shortage of internships.

With the increasing corona infections, it is becoming increasingly difficult for primary schools to keep their lessons in order. That is the conclusion of a poll by the NOS Jeugdjournaal to which more than five hundred primary schools responded. Of the schools that responded, nearly 80 percent indicate that there is no or not always replacement if teachers drop out due to complaints or an infection. Sometimes it is still possible to deploy a teaching assistant, merge classes or be forced to put the principal in front of the class, but some primary schools cannot avoid sending classes home.

“I do think that this sends out a positive signal. Many hospital administrators operate autonomously and hospitals found maintaining regular care even more important than Covid care,” Gommers said in the newspaper. And that had to change.

Almost eight months after the corona virus was first diagnosed in the Netherlands – this in a man from Loon op Zand – the number of positive tests today probably rises to more than 300,000. The counter was on Sunday at more than 291,000 confirmed infections.

Less than two weeks later, we are on the threshold of 300,000. The actual number of Dutch people who have contracted the corona virus is probably much higher. Not everyone was tested in the initial phase of the outbreak.

Hospitals treated 2,147 corona patients on Sunday. 1,657 of them are in a nursing ward, the highest number since April 10. In addition, 490 corona patients are in intensive care. Around 150 beds in intensive care units are still available across the country.

The House of Representatives approved the law on 13 October, after an alliance of eight parties had substantially amended the cabinet’s bill. An important change is that the House of Representatives must approve in advance a drastic corona measure. Exceptions apply for emergencies. A roll call vote will follow in the Senate on Tuesday. It is expected that a majority of the Senate will agree with the bill.

Directors of the 63 MBO schools are concerned about the progress of education: the internship shortage is increasing and online education does not appear to be a good alternative in MBO. That writes Trouw.
