«SECONDARY EDUCATION IN THE NETHERLANDS : AGENDA FOR 2010 “The Pupil Captivated, the School Unfettered” CONTENTS 1. Foreword and structure 2. ...»

-- [ Page 11 ] --

I am aware that the desired new administrative relationships and some actions will not be realised between the end of today and tomorrow. I have set my sights on 2010. It seems like a distant date, but we will need the time.

The world never stands still and how society will develop can only be partially predicted. That is why it is very important for us to prevent education from fossilising. I will keep the dialogue with the schools and all other parties involved going over the development of secondary education. I will continue to discuss the course set and the results that the schools have achieved with educators. This will enable us to respond to strong crosswinds and sail around obstacles. Each year I will update the actions, linked to the financial use of resources, via the budget.

The creation of this long-term plan comes in a period of economic difficulties and cutbacks. Still, the Cabinet has reserved extra funds for education in the coalition agreement. Educators have asked for more money. Under current circumstances, the Cabinet cannot oblige them. In my view, however, money is not the biggest priority in the changes we are confronted with. In order to meet our goal, it is much more important that we are willing to change and to make new choices, also in how we spend the available resources.

To end, I would like to repeat the words of a pupil during the student debate: ”We have talked to each other the entire afternoon, but will anything come of our ideas when we leave here?”. If it's up to me, the answer is yes. Will you join me in bringing this about?
