Justin Bieber's Epic Awesomeness Closes Schools In Norway!

justin bieber norway schools close exam reschedule concert

Between confiscated monkeys and his Viennese shunning, Justin Bieber's Euro Trip has been entertaining as hell — and that's not even counting what happens when he takes the stage!!

Unsure of what to expect and probably fearing the worst, the good people of Norway are basically shutting down their entire country upon JB's mid-April arrival!

Not knowing whether the country's young rural Beliebers might skip their studies to see the Canadian crooner at one of his two Oslo concerts, some schools are actually getting proactive!!

Five schools in one remote district are rescheduling their midterm exams so students don't have to choose between their Canadian idol and their classes!

Ha!!

Kristin Halvorsen, Norway's education minister, admitted:

“I am concerned that students should be concentrating when they take tests and midterms. The local schools have the responsibility to schedule the local midterms, and if they think there is any reason to change the dates, they have authority to do so… We’ve all been 14-years-old and know that interests can be intense.”

Sure, it sounds silly, but when you think about it this crazy plan actually makes sense!!

Hopefully the kids don't fall too far behind!!

    Wow, that's a horrible message to send to kids, that a concert is more important than exams.

    As Norwegian, I feel disgusted by this. I can remember being a huge bubblegum fan back when I was 14, and this would never had happened then. And it will never happen for anyone else than JB. Talk about being unfair. The kids should learn early that they can't just do what they want and expect the world to bow down to their wishes. I can't just decide to go to a concert in a different part of the country if my job won't let me. If I do, there will be consequences. That's how it should be for these kids too. Our kids are already too spoiled, and somehow everyone keeps enabling these horrible attitudes and behaviors of the horrible "beliebers". What about all the other fans of other bands and artists? They manage to behave, why shouldn't we expect that from the "beliebers"?

    Re: Maria – Would you please get a life!. What were you going to say if these kids skipped school? If they skipped they wouldn't write at All!! Now they are going to write at a later stage.
    Jeez.! Calm your tits.

    I'm from Norway, and I don't think it's a problem, because we're smart enough anyways.

    I'm so ashamed of Norway right now, and I do agree with Maria, they shouldn't have moved it. Besides the concert is at 6:30 PM which is WAY after the school is over, midt terms or not.

    Re: Zoey_Graham
    What's your problem? Get your hormones is check please!
    It is a choice. They can choose to skip school or skip the gig. That's the point, there is consequences for every choice. My point is, why should those who are fans of JB get their way, and then there is many other kids who are fans of other bands and artist who would have to do a midterm or skip it. Then the school should accommodate to every teen band/artist having concerts in the middle of the week during midterm and exam period. But maybe you have too little brain cells to understand that that was my actual point….

    Re: PinklyVengeance

    That the show is late doesn't really help those kids living outside of Oslo though because it can take more than 2-3 hours for some people to get to Oslo…. I see your point, but I think people have to choose. School or concert. You can't always get what you want, and if you take it anyway, then there's consequences.

    Re: Maria – You are talking a load of Bull. *CASE * There are apparently a lot of beliebers and they skipped school, and so a lot of children will fail. That would just look bad on the Education system. And so they are just preventing a problem. If a higher officials were to ask why a lot of kids failed they couldn't exactly say "it was their choice" now could they. Now how bout you use that small brain of yours and understand.

    Re: Zoey_Graham
    No, who looks bad are the Beliebers, not the education system. So instead of teaching kids that skipping school will have consequences, lets rather teach them that they can do what they want. If they then fail, then that's their choice yes. I have no problem with people going to see JB, I hope they have a blast. But I think it is wrong of the school to move the midterm or exam because of the concert. If you do not attend a midterm or exam, unless of illness or other reasons already cleared with the school. you fail. That's life. That's what happens in every other aspect of life, why should we teach the kids something that isn't a reality?
    BUT if they move it for JB then they should move it for everyone else also. Why single out JB? Do you see that point?

    Re: Maria – Okay. whatever. Fine. And to answer your question they are singling JB because well he's Justin Bieber. *shrugs*. Life!

    To the people that are commenting and saying that this it's whatever and that kids should have fun, NO. I live in America and this would never be allowed at my high school. Geez, I wish the school board in my county would allow that to happen over a teenage celebrity. It does seem like fun and all but in all honesty I agree with Maria. Obviously we would all feel like we have the upper hand in some way and that having fun is better then a crappy exam.

    Thw kids went throug a long prossess and it god accepted. Good for them! If i had my midterms while knowing i coule have been om a JB consert at that time, i think i would do rather bad on the test.

    So why not just move it one week? the kids did after all search the school admin for this three months ahead just so they could do both. i really don't see the problem in that!
