Every student deserves the opportunity for quality education and care. Especially now, as we face the COVID-19 consequences in education and care. That is why the Dutch Ministry of Education is making 8.5 billion Euros available to be invested in education to aim for recovery and development, especially for those students who are struggling. The subsidy also provides support for teaching staff and teacher assistants as they have shown tremendous flexibility by providing education under constantly changing circumstances.
