Educational Planning and School Reform: A Report on West Germany.
Crowson, Robert L.
This paper examines the status of comprehensive planning for educational reform in the Federal Republic of Germany. Although a late entrant among the European nations engaged in school reform, West Germany is now heavily involved in the problems and politics of structural change. A "General Plan for Education," calling for widespread alteration in the nation's educational system was approved by the various state and federal governments in late 1973. The first section of this paper briefly reviews the background of West Germany's planning effort and the major provision of the "Plan." The second section assesses the current (mid-1975) situation in the implementation of German educational reform. The third, and major, section seeks to draw some general conclusions about educational planning and the initiation of structural change. In the author's view, the German experience indicates the need for carefully designed strategies for implementation as a closely related function of plan development. (Author/IRT)
