The purpose of Kurs21Nord is to focus on school development in the nordic countries - among others by finding answers to these questions:
- Why was the school development initiated?
- Why did it succeed?
- Why did it turn into another direction than intended?
- How can the individual schools act on the background of individual experiences?
Another purpose is to develop a network of headmasters at a Nordic level and to further the Nordic dimension in the schools involved through school based projects and to develop the competences of the headmasters involved.
