The municipality of Rotterdam is in favor of a ban of homeschooling. It is said that homeschooling forms a hindrance for the social and emotional development of children. But what clearly also plays a role is the fear for radicalization. 33 children from the city are being homeschooled. It is said that based on a salafi ideology they are ‘exempted’ from the obligatory (Dutch) education system. The city council fears these children will become radicalized and become a danger for the society.
