BRUSSELS –Flemish school pupils accuse Education Minister Frank Vandenbroucke of not consulting them enough on policy.
This criticism is contained in the annual report submitted by the organisation that represents school students to Flemish minister for education Frank Vandenbroucke (Socialist SP.A).
They say that although there are school councils in place, the opinions of these groups do not weigh heavily enough.
They also think the minister does not maintain enough contact with them.
Moreover they complain about the costs of education. Primary education will now be offered free, but secondary education remains too expensive, they say.
