The Netherlands

Academic primary school (in Dutch)
Council of Christian School Boards (30 May 2012)

One percent of Dutch primary schools have a status of “academic schools.” These schools have contracted with research departments to establish research activities in their schools which are cooperatively implemented by primary school teachers and researchers. The results of this research are expected to directly benefit the quality of teaching and learning in these schools, as the schools enrolled in the program share data with one another.  The Department of Education sponsors these activities as a means to improve the quality of elementary education.
