Education Monitor 2012 Saxony Wins – Berlin No Longer at the Bottom of the Table
Saxony has the most capable education system of all 16 federal states. Such is the result of the Education Monitor 2012 (Bildungsmonitor 2012), a comparative study by the Institute for the German Economy Cologne (IW Köln) that was conducted on behalf of the INSM. The Education Monitor, now published for the ninth time, uses 110 indicators to assess how far a federal state improves its educational infrastructure, secures chances to participate and thus strengthens growth forces.
Discussion Paper of BI and INSM Ascent by Education
There are too many school dropouts in Germany and too few people have a finished education. With an equal socioeconomic background migrant children end up in Hauptschulen (secondary modern schools) more than twice as often as children without a migrant background. Individual support is the key for more equal opportunities. To expedite this discussion within educational policy the INSM has published a discussion paper in collaboration with the Berlin-Institute for Population and Development (Berlin-Institut für Bevölkerung und Entwicklung - BI).
