The National Museum of Education: my school is unique



It is now a century ago. The hard-fought battle for schools was brought to an end with the Pacification of 1917. It gave schools the freedom of self-organisation and resulted in a unique system of education in which each school is different. In 2017, the National Museum of Education is commemorating this important event.
The National Museum of Education commissioned Studio Louter to develop a special educational website for the occasion. At, pupils are able to discover how unique their school is by carrying out active and interactive assignments. By comparing and matching schools with each other, pupils are able to experience how diverse education is in the Netherlands thanks to the Pacification.
