Anti-Racism Education is Introduced in Norwegian Schools

The course “Prevention of anti-Semitism, racism and undemocratic attitudes”, aims at teachers and school administrators.

Talking to Klassekampen, reseracher Rolf Mikkelsen notes this project is one of the most complicated to achieve in the Norwegian education system.

– We can not prevent a new Breivik, but we can help young people to decide, says Mikkelsen.

Ministry of Education began working on the project last spring, and the terrorist attacks on 22 July made the issue more relevant. Now 6 million NOK was allocated for the project.

Project manager Peder Nustad said that this course gains more relevance after 22 July, and our project is exactly to prevent this kind of extremism.
