One child, one teacher, one book, one person can change the world. Malala Yousafzai
And that's WHY
Why I work in and for education throughout my career and want to continue to do this. Why I am currently chairman of the Executive Board of the Gooise Schools Federation. Why I am on the Board of Trustees of the Catholic Pabo in Zwolle (KPZ), the National Education Museum, Kennisland and the LeerKracht foundation.
But also why I am a director of the National Sunflower: young people can make the world more inclusive.
That is why I experience the supervision of De Haagsche Schoolvereeniging as an honor: schools with a special tradition and a powerful contemporary profile. The mission of the HSV "global citizenship, lifelong learning!" fits in beautifully with the assignment that Malala has outlined and that drives me.
That is why I think becoming a member of the supervisory board of the HSV is an honor.
