Education Council

The Education Council is independent and committed to good education for all. The council has been advising the Dutch government and the parliament on education policy and legislation for over one hundred years.

The advices are based on scientific knowledge and insights as knowledge and experience from the field of education. They deal with all forms of education: from pre-school facilities to post-university education and lifelong development.

Pieter Huisman works at Tilburg Law School on the increasing importance of the individual right to education as reflected in concepts such as "inclusive education" or "lifelong development". He also studies the effect of that individual right to education on the position of boards, teachers, parents and students.
