I was educated as a (head)teacher in basic education, a mathematics teacher and
I studied ‘Educational management and education in international perspective’ at the State University Groningen in the Netherlands.
My main current interests are:
• Leadership development
• Relations of (local) governments with (global) educational industry
• Inequity in all its forms. Differences between policies and practice
• The contrast between the growing focus on evidence for practice and the disappointing results of research and theory development
