Non-immigrant Dutch people say they want their children to grow up in a multicultural society, but would actually prefer their own kids to live in a white neighbourhood and go to a non-mixed school.
This is the conclusion of research carried out by the monthly magazine J/M voor Ouders. A cross-section of parents, 588 in all, were interviewed for the piece.
The magazine says 80 percent of the parents acknowledge the advantages of growing up in a society made up of different cultures. However, 57 percent worry about the position of their white children in a mixed-race society.
