In Switzerland there are a lot of different expectations connected with the development of extended education. However, it is largely unclear whether or not the expectations concerning an extended learning culture -- and thus concerning diverse support measures in extended education offerings -- are being met. This paper takes up this point and examines from different perspectives -- through mixed methods research -- the educational principles and goals and the educational quality of extended education offerings. We found that the emphasis that directors of extended education place on the goals of opening up the schools and students' manual and practical skills can explain in part the differing quality of extended education offerings.
