UTRECHT – The General Education Union (AOb) is asking school administrations and educators to give students the opportunity to go to Amsterdam on Friday to take part in the demonstration on the Museumplein organised by school student association LAKS. The union said this on Thursday.

The AOb supports the call from LAKS for a reduction to the minimum classroom hour requirement of 1,040 hours. "The AOb does support a clear minimum requirement for classroom time. A range of 960 to 1040 hours would give schools the latitude to offer intensive and high quality education. The AOb is demanding time for quality." The union will also speak at the demonstration.

The CNV Education Union also supports the protest and thinks that pupils should be given a chance to attend the demonstration in Amsterdam. The union said that teachers too should take part in the protest in order to supervise their students.
