Abstract

Because of the separated responsibilities and accompanying budgets within the financing system of primary educational real estate a conflict of interest is present between municipalities and school boards; which leads to buildings of suboptimal quality. By using the Analytical Hierarchy Process, this research tries to identify which elements of a primary school are considered as being the most valuable; how these elements are evaluated in current primary schools and which proposed improvement measures for the financing system are considered as being the most fruitful. Subsequently, the impact of these measures on the possible value creation within primary schools is modeled by using the System Dynamics methodology.
