Article
Within the German school system, an expansion of private schools in the general educational and vocational field is to be witnessed. In this, different forms of private schools providing general education gain special public attention because they offer international degrees, bilingual instruction, or all-day schooling and are established in the la...
Article
A female pedagogue and a male social worker act as coaches bringing back to reason lower secondary school students who are fed up with school, willing to commit acts of violence, or simply grumpy, and thus form both the dynamic and the "cool" poles of a teaching staff consisting of well-intentioned, yet rather stressed elderly male teachers and res...
Chapter
über die inhaltlichen Perspektiven der Erziehungswissenschaft seit den 1970er Jahren geben zusammenhängend drei Sammelveröffentlichungen Auskunft: Das erste Werk dieser Art gab der Deutsche Bildungsrat 1975, im letzten Jahr seines Bestehens, unter dem Titel „Bildungsforschung. Probleme — Perspektiven — Prioritäten“ in zwei Teilbänden heraus (vgl. D...
Article
According to an article published in the "Zeit" on January 12(th), 2006, the federal government's new representative for integration, Maria Bohmer, considers it urgent to strengthen the migrant groups' "appreciation of education" This request may be interpreted in different ways, for instance, as the demand to increase pedagogical measures such as...

... Ezek olyan nem állami fenntartású intézmények, melyek képzési és kimeneti követelményei megegyeznek az állami intézményekével, de magánkézben -például cégekvannak. A kiegészítő iskolák esetében az engedélyeztetés is gyorsan megoldható, ha minden szükséges dokumentum rendelkezésre áll, és a tanárok végzettsége is megfelelő, elegendő három hónappal tanévkezdés előtt engedélyeztetni azt (Koinzer -Leschinsky 2009). ...
... To give an example: as a response to its low PISA results in 2000, Germany introduced binding national education standards, strengthened early education, and all-day schools became the rule rather than the exception in most German Länder. A paradigm shift commenced that entailed the introduction of predefined and measurable education outcomes, emphasizing considerations concerning the efficacy and efficiency of the whole school system (Leschinsky 2005). This transformation is still ongoing. ...
... Zudem finden sich eher personalisierte, individuell-subjektive und konkretanschauliche Zugänge zu Arbeit und Arbeitslosigkeit in den Schülervorstellungen. Auch dies dürfte institutionell mitverursacht sein. So lässt sich aus Webers (2008) Curricula-Analyse schließen, dass der Arbeitslehre-Unterricht nahezu ausschließlich auf einer mikroökonomischen, auf das Individuum bezogenen Ebene stattfindet und dass er, wie Leschinsky (2008) zeigt, in den meisten Fällen nicht von Fachlehrern unterrichtet wird. Zudem weist Zurstrassen (2012) auf einen stark deskriptiven und individualistischen Zugang zu gesellschaftlichen Themen in Schulbüchern hin. ...
... In 1970, the (Western) German Educational Council (Deutscher Bildungsrat 1970) presented reform recommendations to overcome educational disadvantage perceived to be caused by socio-economic factors, gender, cultural background (seen to be influenced by religious belief and affiliation), or region (i.e. rural vs. urban areas) (Cortina et al. 2005). At that time, a 'girl from a Catholic working-class family in a rural area' represented the quintessential educationally disadvantaged child in (West) Germany. ...
... Gesprochen wird von der traditionellen Doppelbezeichnung Schulpädagogik/Didaktik (Tillmann, 2005;vgl. u. a. Gläser-Zikuda, 2008;Leschinsky, 2008;Kowarsch, 2011). ...

... Educational expansion in Germany primarily occurred in the direct transition to upper secondary education (Baumert et al. 2008;Schindler 2014). Nevertheless, an increasing proportion of students who initially chose a lower secondary track changes to upper secondary after grade 10 and obtains a higher education entrance certificate after grade 12 or 13 (Blossfeld 2019;Buchholz and Schier 2015;Jacob and Tieben 2009). ...
