Six out of ten schools offer a Muslim appropriate diet

Two reports elaborated by the Parent-Teacher Association of a public school in Álava (in the Basque Country) try to show how migrant parents feel about their relationship with the school administration. Among the difficulties put forward by the parents are: the access to specific information about the composition of the food provided to the children at the school cafeteria, the possibility to adapt the children’s school vacation to the Muslim holidays, and the idiomatic problems that Arabic-speaking students face when arriving at a region where the dominant language at school is the Euskera. Still, the reports are positive as they refer to a 60% of schools in the Northern region offering a Muslim appropriate diet to their students and an open dialogue between parents and the schools administrations.
