Reviews of National Policies for Education. Germany.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
The material presented in this report deals with the examination of educational policy and planning in Germany carried out as part of the program of the Education Committee of OECD for the Review of National Educational Policies. Part I is a report of the evaluation of German education made by the examiners. The material focuses on the course of educational reform since 1945, major recent events in educational policy-making at the national level, and some current reform proposals and goals for modernizing education. A summary record of the meeting between examiners, representatives of the German authorities and members of the OECD Education Committee comprises the second part of this volume. These three major areas of questions raised by the examiners are discussed: the need to reconceptualize German education so that the individual student would be prepared for the realities of his new role in an expanding, fluid, democratic society; the substantive need to reform German education along the lines of the policy commitment for equality of educational opprtunity; the problems of translating policy into practical, financial and other strategic commitments for educational reform.
