BUSSUM - The first private primary school in the Netherlands is to open its doors next week in the town of Bussum. The school was set up by people dissatisfied with the education system.
The school has four pupils now, but its founders expect this number to grow.
The fees are EUR 12,500 a year per child. Normal Dutch primary schools are entirely state funded.
There are also plans to open private primary schools in Haarlem and Arnhem.
