With five months to go before the start of the new school year, 2,398 primary school students are on the waiting list for enrolment in their next secondary school, according to figures released on Thursday by the inter-network enrolment commission.

This represents an increase of almost 30% compared to last year.

As usual, the situation is most tense in the Brussels region, with 1,492 pupils said to be “without school,” an increase of 27% compared to 2020.
