One of the significant educational players in Belgium is ‘GO! Onderwijs van de Vlaamse Gemeenschap’, and is run by the Flemish Community. Despite being financed by the state, it functions independently from the Flemish Ministry of Education. GO! gathers 28 groups of schools, approximately 1,000 educational institutions representing 3,000 buildings, and roughly 300,000 students. This represents 15% to 20% of the total amount of students in Flanders and Brussels, along with about 32.000 staff members.
