590. The Ukaliusaq School

The Ukaliusaq school in Godthaab called Nuuk by locals has been the center of a molestion case where students tied a girls up, removed her trousers and took photos posting them on social networks like Facebook.

The last day of the school-year 2016-2017 where the students celebrate was cancelled. Investigation is ongoing.

The harsh climate has not made it easy to run a school. In 2008 the school had to be closed due to risk of power shorting. In 2011 there was fire which meant some days off.

However the social conditions on Greenland are bad. It is estimated that ever third teenager aged below 15 years of age at one point during their lives have been molested.

The problem is that the Danish government has granted power to a small elite in their so-called capital and outside the city alcoholism and poor conditions is the standard. Near their capital the infant mortality is almost on European standard. On the other side of Greenland, it resembles the conditions you find in poor regions in Africa.

Nothing can be done. You cannot turn back time and order Greenland to become a colony once more. It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
