The Brussels consultation round: schools take the floor

18 school teams from the Dutch-speaking schools in Brussels engaged in dialogue with the VGC college member responsible for Education. Together, they reflected on the future of education in Brussels and made a series of recommendations. Other schools sent in their ideas via an online survey. These ideas and recommendations have inspired the VGC’s policy for the coming years.
