Dear friends,

As you are most likely preparing for the summer break we would like to inform you of some recent developments in our company and in our industry.

 We're moving office!
 

photo Oranje Nassaulaan On 15 July we will be moving into our new office in 's-Hertogenbosch. The main reason for this move is that we have been sharing offices with StudyWorld (Netherlands) BV/IDP Netherlands. Since StudyWorld has sold part of its activities to Kilroy Education the offices we share have become too big.

Our new address will be:

iE&D Solutions BV
Oranje Nassaulaan 12b
5211 AW 's-Hertogenbosch
The Netherlands
P +31 73 627 3608
F +31 73 627 3609

 China Announces New Education Blueprint 2010-2020
 

forbidden city Last month, the Chinese government unveiled an ambitious new blueprint for its national educational development in the next ten years, that promises more spending, more access, better quality and less red tape and corruption. The National Outline for Medium and Long Term Education Reform and Development (2010-2020) was in the works for over a year and a half, and included - in typical "democracy with Chinese characteristics" fashion - two rounds of opportunities for the general public to comment on earlier drafts of the policy paper. The Outline addresses just about every aspect of the Chinese education system, from pre-school to university, and from funding to school autonomy, quality, ICT in education and internationalization.
