Forced assimilation in preschools of Danish "ghetto" lpw income and muslim children is extremely meddlesome

See https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/01/world/europe/denmark-immigrant-ghettos.html

The rise of the minority antimuslim political party is the likely reason the Danish government introduced a forced assimilation law. It requires children from the age of one in designated low income ghettos to spend 25 hours a week in preschools to expose them to mainstream Danish values and dilute values from their countries of ethnic origin which are thought to prevent assimilation. It isn't clear if this law will apply to poor non muslim ghettos to dilute values of the poorest such as a potentially feckless attitude towards work.

Thanks to its homogeneous society and very generous welfare state, Denmark seems to have avoided the historic social and racial class conflicts of big European countries. So it must have come as a shock to Danes that many muslim refugees with low standards of education and limited Danish language skills suffer high unemployment, social welfare dependency and related social ills.

Denmark's assimilation law is extremely meddlesome and should be criticised by the EU.

A less meddlesome approach to breaking up socially undesirable ghettos was the Netherlands' requirement in the past decade that families move out of ghettos as a condition for qualifying for social welfare. Incidentally, the policy in Ireland of relying on private landlords for social housing instead of council housing estates may have had the same effect!
