Examines the pros and cons of variety in Dutch schools, noting possible consequences for educational quality and accessibility and the impact on social cohesion. The paper asserts that variety is extremely desirably in general and should be encouraged to promote innovation, cautioning that differences between schools should be tolerated as long as schools ensure that their statutory assignments and function within the education system are not harmed.
