Why Is There No Comprehensive Education in Germany? A Historical Explanation
Wiborg, Susanne
History of Education, v39 n4 p539-556 Jul 2010
This article investigates why there is no comprehensive education in Germany in contrast to most other European countries where comprehensive education in various forms was introduced, especially after the Second World War. The article will proceed by assessing established assumptions of this German peculiarity and put forward a new comparative theory of why Germany maintained a selective, tripartite system. (Contains 43 footnotes.)
