Five schools in Norway have rescheduled midterm exams to allow students to attend Justin Bieber concerts in Oslo. This is from the Daily Mail…
The Canadian pop star is scheduled to perform at the Telenor Arena in the Norwegian capital on April 16 and 17 – sparking fears that some students in remote schools will skip midterm exams due to take place at the same time.
Norway’s Ministry of Education and Research confirmed today that five schools in the Alesund region – located some 230 miles (375 kilometers) northwest of Oslo – have rescheduled exams to accommodate students’ wish to attend Bieber’s concerts.
Minister Kristin Halvorsen says schools have the right to change dates for midterms exams and that the ministry does not intend to intervene.
The popstar has been through more than his fair share of controversy in recent weeks after being late for concert appearances, taking a pet monkey on a flight and notoriously attacking a photographer during his stint in London.
