There are sixteen examples from the Netherlands and thirty-four from abroad. Each case includes a description of the objectives of the initiative, the key activities and effects, as well as indications as to why the initiative may be regarded as a good practice. The fifty initiatives are grouped under four themes: educational differentiation, intensity of education, teacher quality and study success. In addition, attention is paid to the following aspects: customization for target groups, skills and competencies for the 21st century, and the use of information and communication technologies in the classroom.
