Participation Council

By law, every school in the Netherlands is linked with a medezeggenschrapsraad (MR). This is a participation council, where elected representatives of teachers and parents are consulted by the school management over matters concerning the management of the school. As prescribed by law, there are separate MR’s for the Primary and Secondary schools and separate general participation councils (GMR) which deal with the Stichting’s (Foundation) issues.


According to legislation, the MR holds two types of rights: the right of advice (adviesrecht) and the right of approval (instemmingrecht). Matters in which either right can be used are specified. The MR’s are regulated by the Dutch law 'Wet medezeggenschap op scholen'.
