An example is the policy of the Aruban Multilingual School, including the core objectives implementation approved in 2018. They also approved the Multilingual education approach, based on the mother tongue.

They must derive the integral management of primary education from the National Education Plan 2030 (PEN 2030), an already formalized general strategic education management. With the development of integrated management for primary education, they will make a starting memorandum o renew the current laws of preparatory and primary education, which date back to the last century. These laws are one of the conditions for providing quality education. The renewal and development of education laws is a priority for the responsible minister.
