Discrepancies in educational advice 2/21/2007
21 February 2007

AMSTERDAM – Children of ethnic minority background in Amsterdam are more frequently given a recommendation for further education that clashes with their results on the standardised CITO test than children of native Dutch background.

This has emerged from the report “Primary school recommendations and ethnicity” presented by the Amsterdam municipality on Tuesday.

The study shows that students of ethnic minority background who get a high score on the test are more often referred to lower levels of further education than native Dutch students.

Only 28% of native Dutch students are recommended for programmes below the level demonstrated on their test performance – this figure is much higher for Moroccans, Surinamese, and Turks: 41, 34, and 44 percent respectively.
