Henk Vos on the Dutch experience of denominational schooling

Mr Henk Vos, a member VGS an organisation which supports boards and directors of Christian schools in the Netherlands, spoke to the Iona Institute about the Dutch experience of faith schools.

Mr Vos explained how in the Netherlands two-thirds of primary schools are Church-run and State-funded and enjoy a high degree of autonomy. The result, he said, was quality schools and a high degree of parental satisfaction.
