Early life and education
Sander Dekker was born on 9 February 1975 in The Hague in the Netherlands.
He went to primary and secondary schools in Zoetermeer. He studied public administration at Leiden University (1993–1999).
Actions as a State Secretary
In July 2015 Dekker submitted to parliament a proposal to change two aspects of the freedom of education law:
- Not to demand that new schools represent an ideological direction, such as a religion. New schools could be based on an idea for good education, for instance ICT-based education, green schools, or other innovative concept, as long as sufficient interest exists for such a system.
- To introduce more severe quality controls. Freedom of education should not be a license for bad educational systems.
