Policy Bears Responsibility
The decades of austerity at German schools has plenty negative fruits the German school makes worldwide headlines for quite some time. Unfortunately no positive. The renewed attacks of Ansbach makes it clear that it is already with us after 12:00. But the policy failed and once again exercise in inactivity. 10 years ago seemed all right to be at German schools. There was still no PISA studies and known attacks only from the United States. But the situation is deceived. Already at that time it was powerful bubbling beneath the surface, even at that time the teacher warned.
But no one wanted to hear it. Much has happened since then. The comparison tests, known as Pisa, were a shock, at least to the uninitiated. Then was followed by attacks on a regular basis. Everyone should be clear that we have also here long American relations. But the politics always still does not seem to want to realize this and continues to deny a student teachers no longer could risk out. Yet actions if not fizzle out, recipes for the Improvement are presented.
The fact is, we have the largest classes in Europe in Germany numerically. No industrial country has so little education to including to secondary I out as we. And this austerity has consequences: poor performance, increased potential for aggression in the large classes, poor discipline, overwhelmed and even terrified teachers and last but not least anonymity due to to large classes. The list could be extended. The society has changed. Everywhere are problems in the family, which are carried out also on children’s minds and then dragging them in the schools. A profusion of media influences flows on the children of today, who can process it not alone anymore. Instead of so the school to adapt to changing realities and to reduce, the strength of the class one has gone even the opposite way in Germany. It has increased the number of students in the classes and increases the number of instructor hours. This short-sighted austerity now retaliates and makes us unprepared in the mark. Passed out before this fact will expire the policy in silence or exercises in nonsensical discussions that only delay the issue. It has already planned the money in other areas: crime, especially the youth, educational measures for school failure… We have become a repair company and pay the double and triple of what we save in the schools for the Schulsparkurs in other areas. Guilt and responsibility for the disastrous situation is therefore only the short-sightedness of the policy which has failed completely in terms of school. However, the company must pay, we all must pay. We have reached a negative level, from which there are only two ways out. Either we schools in the United States hermetically secure or but we can reduce the number of pupils per teacher sharply by at least 30 percent to take it some tension and aggressiveness from the school. Both measures are expensive, so fear is that once again everything. Unfortunately it is not in terms of education how they showed so decisive it to alleviate the economic crisis. It is therefore the question entitled when we have to report again by a recent negative climax and the next stop at a German school. ArneFrentzel
At that time they held it together more, the society was not divided: the good side, if all have not much. No envy and little greed: on what indeed? School education times are independent of time and place today in times of the Internet. The availability of information is almost unlimited, hard to slow the flood of information. To no longer have the danger of information pollution by hand. In the last, it was different.
If the author correctly interprets the characters, so little has changed at the today compared to yesterday, when it comes to the environment and climate in which takes place the whole thing. There, by the metre scientific studies that assure together always one: environment and climate for school and education time gene must be stimulating and supportive. Easily then speaking in theory, in practice all the more complicated. Starting with the domestic environment. Despite the stark comparison to today material shortcomings, it seemed not so bad ordered in that yesterday the author. Due to adverse circumstances, it became closer together. Family and society is moving in a common yet manageable worldview.
Then continue to the school environment. Parents could and were allowed to govern into little in school matters. Curricula were so as they are. A few are known the Narrator, i.e. actually no, they have ultimately greater damage inflicted. Spelling reform standing near a bureaucratic pride was spared students as teachers. Why, actually, a question such as, for example, that put an entire country after eight or nine years of upper school in turmoil, and to decide the outcome of elections, if on the other hand a serious Gash as the proven harmful again and again and again and again conversion slavishly going from summer to winter, from winter to summer time? Drugs and violence in schools? Nil! Which at the time would as badly felt, known school references today rather under the heading wish son-in-law”fall. In a word: There is a certain probability, that in the meantime to despite all konstatierenden wealth increases in the school environment, which yesterday were not too serious disadvantages to chalking.
