Last week, the Lower House voted in favour of a motion to give all students who fall behind in their studies due to corona a free academic year. Van Engelshoven does not seem to see a solution in that proposal. Instead, she would like to propose halving the tuition fee for all students for one year.

The proposal is part of a plan to eliminate learning disadvantages throughout Dutch education. The plan will be presented Wednesday afternoon and should cost between 6 and 8.5 billion euros in total.
