Frisian literature in education

E. Hoekstra, Gerbrich de Jong

Research output: Chapter in book/volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


Frisian is a minority language, taught at least one hour a week in primary schools. As a result, Frisian literature occupies a smaller position in the educational system than Dutch literature, since Dutch is the national language. This chapter discusses systematically the position of fiction and literature in the various types of education in primary schools, secondary schools, universities and courses for adults. Special attention is given to the way in which officially established attainment goals affect the end term requirements set for the final examinations.
