Denmark to give children in migrant neighbourhoods compulsory lessons on democracy and equality. By Tom Barnes.

Denmark will force children living in “ghetto” neighbourhoods containing large numbers of migrants to learn about democracy and equality, as well as traditions such as Christmas.

The Scandinavian country’s government announced the new policy, which will see children from certain districts completing 25 hours of compulsory state education each week from the age of one.

Denmark uses the term “ghetto” as an official designation for neighbourhoods populated by primarily by non-Western immigrants. …

Denmark has struggled for decades with how to integrate migrants from areas such as the Middle East into its largely ethnically and religiously homogenous society.
