Dutch tabloid De Telegraaf is reporting that the country’s new government has drawn up cultural plans for Dutch schoolchildren.
The proposals, which are to be made compulsory, mean that children of school age must visit parliament and view Rembrandt van Rijn’s 1642 painting The Night Watch at least once.
According to the paper, “schools must take pupils at least once during their school years to visit parliament’s lower house and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.” The painting is considered the “altarpiece” of the newly revamped Rijksmuseum.
“The four parties forming the coalition – the VVD, CDA, D66 and the Christian Union – have reached an agreement on this,” De Telegraaf claimed.
