According to political party VVD a teacher should immediately inform the police when a student expresses radical thoughts. Currently many teachers find it difficult to decide whether someone really has those thoughts or whether s/he is just expressing some ‘rebellious’ adolescent behavior. The police is in a better position to decide on this matter.
VVD finds the current way there is dealt with the problem of youth radicalizing too soft. Now schools are only required to warn the police when a student has real plans traveling to Syria.
VVD member Sjoerd Potters criticizes the way schools are dealing with the problem. According to them they avoid talking about the topic.
