The Muslim organization behind the denied request is now considering an appeal to the Education Ministry
“We have three weeks to decide what to do. We think it is about time that there is a Muslim school in Oslo but the formalities must of course be in place,” Siri Helene Derouiche, the leader of the group behind the application, said.
The Oslo City Council also rejected the school’s application last autumn.
The foundation Den Muslimske Grunnskole wants to establish and operate a private Muslim primary school in Oslo. Its plan calls for some 200 students between first and tenth grades.
The group wants to establish the school in Oslo’s immigrant-heavy Grønland district and said that all teaching would be in Norwegian.
