We demand a plan for future development in which quality comes first.In this regard, we want to pose a fundamental question: as it is now, is the Rietveld Academy not too big already? The MR ('Medezeggenschapsraad', in English 'Representative Advisory Board') had to take the first steps towards inquiring about the plans, while the management is legally obliged to inform the MR before proceeding.In other words, the management forsake its duty to inform the MR.As a result, the MR is unable to fulfill its advisory function.This moment of presentation was designated, by the management, as a moment of decision.Weeks later, the rest of the 250 Rietveld employees could read in Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant (in an article published on 30 April, 2009), that the management wanted to relocate the academy to the 'Bos en Lommer' area of Amsterdam (a so-called 'Vogelaarwijk': one of the poorest and most problematic districts of the Netherlands). After protest by the majority of the coordinators, this moment of decision has been postponed for two weeks.

Linda van Deursen Rumours about the Rietveld Academy moving out of the current building to move into the old GAK building are so strong that I think it is necessary to put some of my thoughts on paper.

Bearing this in mind, this is not the right moment to make such a high-risk decision; a decision that can never be reversed.

A decision whereby the Rietveld Academy will never be able to return to smaller numbers of students. We strongly doubt whether the the former GAK building, designed in 1961 as an office building, will be an actual improvement, especially when measured against the loss of the original Rietveld building.

We want the Rietveld Academy to maintain its unique character and to remain in its designated building.

We also demand a rigorous research of all the needs of the academy (a new 'Programma van Eisen'), based on the experiences of the teachers, and executed by an independent committee.
