Schools in Norway struggle, many of them can’t afford maintaining their buildings and that means that a lot of kids will suffer this winter. In some schools the kids can see through the wall, or if they kick it a bit they will kick through. Many schools have to borrow books from other schools, kids get bullied but the teachers don’t have any measures to stop it.
The national budget for 2010 is out and guess what. To save the school-situation they…. “provide money for giving kids 1 hour extra teaching a week”. Fantastic eh? They also provide 28 million NOK to upgrade schools, but they are already 60 billion NOK behind.. I guess the 28 million NOK will provide new doorknobs for the teachers toilets.
Oh, and our royalties get 1 million NOK extra in salary next year.
