Admission to education is an important theme in Dutch educational law and educational policy. First, this article gives an overview of the relevant statutory provisions in the Dutch educational system. Second, it focuses on recent discussions about admission for parents, pupils and students. A difference becomes clear between higher education on the one side and primairy & secundairy education on the other. For the former, policymakers seem to prefer decentralisation of regulatory principles (local justice); for the latter policymakers seem to adher to centralisation (global justice). As a result, it is likely that in the following years more questions will arise about (1) the character of the contractual relations between schools and parents, pupils and students and (2) harmonisation of the principles that regulate access in the Dutch educational system.
