The German Education System since 1945: Outlines and Problems.
This book outlines the diversity of the German federal education system. The introduction presents a preliminary survey of the history of German education since 1945. Reference is made to the Soviet Occupied Zone and the German Democratic Republic, which is indispensable for understanding the current situation. The book covers the most important institutions coordinating educational policy (the Conference of Laender Ministers of Education, the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research, and Technology, the Federal-Laender Commission for Educational Planning and Advancement of Research, and the influence of interest groups and churches, consultative bodies such as the Science Council, and educational research). The main emphasis in the book is the overall system of education from kindergarten to adult education. The last three chapters deal with current issues, view German education in the European and international context, and conclude with a summary that makes clear the urgency of re-orientation of educational policy in schools and universities. Thirty-one appendices conclude the volume. (BT)
