"Black flight" from primary schools
"The children of middle class migrants are fleeing mixed schools in massive numbers," reports De Morgen. According to the Brussels daily, the exodus has been prompted by "Moroccans who do not want their children in the same class as East Europeans." For Antwerp University professor Paul Mahieu, who studies segregation in primary education, schools are faced with a "black flight" that is comparable to the more well known phenomenon of "white flight," in which parents from the indigenous population withdraw their children from schools with a large proportion of students from foreign backgrounds.
