Brugklas - Education in the Netherlands - Netflix
Education in the Netherlands is characterized by division: education is
oriented toward the needs and background of the pupil. Education is
divided over schools for different age groups, some of which are divided
in streams for different educational levels. Schools are furthermore
divided in public, special (religious), and general-special (neutral)
schools, although there are also a few private schools. The Dutch
grading scale runs from 1 (very poor) to 10 (outstanding). The Programme
for International Student Assessment (PISA), coordinated by the
Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), ranks the
education in the Netherlands as the 9th best in the world as of 2008,
being significantly higher than the OECD average.
