The CD, titled Weer samen naar School (Back to School Together) with accompanying karaoke version and workbook, has been distributed to the country's 10,000 primary schools at a cost of around Pounds 20,000 in a bid to stem the recent surge in the numbers of pupils with special needs being referred to special schools.
The lyrics of one of the eight songs, about "Bas . . . the fattest, stupidest kid in the class", continue "But we don't want to lose our big silly Bas". One of the less politically-correct numbers sings the praises of the education ministry: "The boss of schools works extra hard to make sure that there is a place for all of us."
