This have nothing with the idea that it is dangerous to get to know other peoples ideas, and to get to know other of a different skin color. Many young do that too, in my class in grade school, we had a fellow from Indonesia (who by the way spoke perfect Norwegian, even with an dialect) and a girl from Sri Lanka. Who I by the way had a fling for but never dared to do anything with it and so one.. But of course, they do was the minority, and for the most part I believe "my" school was rather "white" even tho we did have some from all over the world.. It is not dangerous to get to know other groups of people, and i hope, when I get my own children (it doesn't look to good, but you never know!) that I can learn my children to be color blind, and to accept people in a far better way than I do, even tho I try my best to accept everyone regardless of color or ethnically background..

But, it is also a point, that this is just one school, who was trying this out, and at the look at it, it will end pretty fast as everyone who have seen into this case, doesn't like the idea of segregating the classes.. I suspect that this will be ended before the Christmas Holiday.. And that the pupils will get a mixed class when they arrive after the holidays (after new years celebration)

This is NOT the standard in Norway by all, in most schools pupils from all forms of life and world, are mixing and get to know each other in a way that is far better than the opposite.. It is not that usually that black and white is playing together in primary school, and in grade school this days.. In many ways, things have been better than it was, when I was in grade school I would say.. In some way it haven't, it all depend of how you are looking at things I guess!
