Brussels schools overcrowded

Brussels: Schools in Brussels, from nursery and primary to secondary education, are increasingly prone to overcrowding. By 2020, some 42,000 additional places will need to be created in order to accommodate the growing population. This is according to a study published today by the Brussels Studies Institute (BSI), titled Education in Brussels: a complex crisis. Demographic growth provides the main explanation for this increasing need for space, with an estimated 60% of the world’s population – some five billion people – expected to be living in cities by 2020. The effects of this urbanization will be most greatly felt in Brussels primary schools, where an additional 20,000 places are to be provided by 2020 . In secondary schools, the number is 12,500, and in nursery schools 9,500, according to BSI.
