M-decree and care in mainstream education

Dutch speaking chamber on April 09, 2019

The Court of Audit questioned 60 schools in mainstream education about their care policy and the measures they took for pupils with specific educational needs. The Court of Audit considers the general care policy to be positive, with a few points for attention. The schools made a lot of adjustments for students with a motivated report or report and generally found it reasonable. They found adjustments unreasonable if the student needed a lot of individual attention, which was especially the case with students with intellectual disabilities and students with behavioral problems. The CLBs and support networks interviewed are of the opinion that not all schools are at the same level in their care policy. The teachers can only agree to a limited extent with the principles of the M-decree.
