Dutch education

There are some disturbing things going on in Dutch education, particularly with the final exams of high school

In fact there is even a petition going on to ask the government to improve the situation:

I know, many of you are not high school native Dutch students, but what irks me about this is that the Dutch government demands language exams from you, while messing up on the linguistic education of it own mother tongue speakers. If this goes on, YOU better be the teacher because the natives won't know their own language anymore.
