The little Prince Sverre Magnus and Princess Ingrid Alexandra are so cute! :- )

This family is wonderful, always so simple and gentle, I like them very much.

TRH are off duty for two months as they've left for a two month trip around the world with the children.
The children have dispensation from school.The trip is strictly private.Good for them,fly out as long as you
can.

Why make a big number out of putting your daughter and heir in a public school if you're just going to take her out of school for an extended period of time after only a few months, upsetting the class environment that is in its early stages of development, stressing the already very stressed teacher with making special programs and setting a very bad example for parents who increasingly are demanding to take their children out of school outside the regular school holidays in order to benefit from cheaper off-season holidays? If you can't deal with the Stalinist demands of a public school modelled on the Prussian system, go to a private school where you can pay to have a tailor-made program suited to parents' idiosyncracies.

I think many find this weird. IMO there is just an other reason.

Upsetting the class environment!!!!My Foot!Really,it takes you to put those syllables together.Stalinist demands and Prussian systems,my dear,you're as daft as they come.Good Lawd,is that a case off...if there ever was one... ::) :-X

There might be a very good reason for them to do so,and btw,they didn't make any big number to put them in public schools.At all.
Fact is the children are exceptionally bright and will catch up with homework during the trip.People wanting to have their kids off school
for numerous reasons,they've heard all  of 'm,the non-valid nonsense they come up with.So it's pure and downright jealousy of narrowminded creatures .
The kids will love it and learn of it greatly,the whole family closely togheter for two months is a great experience while they still have the chance.

Within my own family we have the exact same,one of my brothers is on a 7 month trip to Oz and New Zealand,with all the  family,two sons and one daughter.
From time to time they connect to school with the laptop and do their homework.No problem.The massive experience they have with
the whole bunch at once is so worthwhile,school at this time,can't compete.Besides,they've all three skipped a class in Gymnasium
already and won't mind to double a year if they come back and it turns out they missed too much.16 is too young to move on to University
anyway.So I wish  Haakon and Mette Marit and the three children a whale of a time!!


This ofcourse means TRH will not attend the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo on december 10th.Many more to come,the family comes first now.

Yes, it really takes a Norwegian in close contact with teachers and pedagogues to know the Norwegian public school system.....

No-one with a little insight is doubting that the children will cope marvellously and that globe-trotting between charity projects really is (at least superfiscially) the best education Ingrid Alexandra can get for her future job.
It's the symbolic value, the signal it sends to other parents, that is crucial. It can also be beneficial, because it can show that this is the way people want to do things now and that the public school system, which originally was based on a Prussian model, is unable to cope, out of touch and needs new and better organisational frames.

Which in Norway, it has been said, is a stronger impulse than the sex drive! (Norway, now again chosen by the UN the world's best country to live in, especially for children,) has also been called "the last Stalinist country" for the negative aspects that can only be summed up in the Norwegian word ensrettethet, i.e. everybody looking the same way and thinking the same, something which often astonishes foreigners accustumed to a larger pluralism of viewpoints.

Really,your post rambles from the first syllable to the last and I am not impressed by
any teachers in your circle.At all..And,really,no one gives  a damn for the sex drive of Norwegians.
Not to my knowledge,really besides the point to put it mildly and I stick to my previous
conclusion,you're painfully daft....alez,I try to see it as coleur locale...there's one everywhere...

If your debating technique is that bad, I compassionately hope it was not caused by your parents withdrawing you from school for a longer period of time.

Interesting that you seem to imply that it's fine if the Crown Princely Couple are more in tune with foreign commentators than their own subjects. Wonder if it's possible to "sell out some royals?" We'd better ask Märtha Louise....

I don't debate bull,get it kid?I only debate what is worthwhile,really worthwhile.
This is such a nonsense that you emit,a horse has more class while emitting.Gas that is.
Involve my parents?What a classy debating technique.One more time

Well, as you can see it affects their judgement, so it has to be taken into account, just like the well-known abrasiveness of the Dutch.

Forgive me for thinking it was Ok to trot off ad parentii when you charged so thunderingly ad hominem, to use your equine metaphor in a less odorous sense!

I don't debate bull,get it kid?I only debate what is worthwhile,really worthwhile.

I am sure you can only find a worthy enough debating opponent in your august self. Hm, strangely that might also, coïncidentially, be a result of extended itinerant home schooling..... :-)
