Forced language training for pre-schoolers

The Labour Party's integration committee will propose compulsory language training for children of immigrants, if they do not speak Norwegian well enough by the age of four. (Photo: Committee Head Jonas Gahr Støre)

If the reason is that their parents do not have a good command of Norwegian themselves, the children should be sent to kindergarten, the integration committe states. It is their command of the language at kindergarten age which will determine how well they will succeed in their future working life, the Committee believes.

The proposal will be presented by the head of the committe, Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, to the Labour Party's National Board at its meeting on Wednesday.
