The Dutch government will give primary schools and schools for special education more money next year to reduce teachers' workload. The Ministry of Education will divide 236 million euros among the 7 thousand schools next year. And that amount will increase in the coming years, RTL Nieuws reports based on figures from the Ministry.

This year 248 schools in the Netherlands can call themselves excellent, 49 more than last year, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science announced on Monday.

A school is considered excellent if its quality of education is very good and it excels in some way, such as its lessons fitting very well with the situation in its neighborhood, or its way of teaching being inspiring, innovative and motivating. An independent jury assess whether a school deserves the recognition, and the Inspectorate of Education awards the predicates, which are valid for three years.
