WHY are German schools so bad in an international comparison (30th place)? A current study by the Institute for Economic Research (University of Munich) shows: 23.8% of all students “do not achieve any basic skills that should be taught in school.”Yes, it is obvious, but no one wants to say it anymore.
The President of the German Teachers’ Association, Heinz-Peter Meidinger (68), speaks plainly to Bild: “A key reason for the drop in performance at primary schools is the proportion of students with a migration background, which has increased by more than 50% in the last ten years.” The higher their proportion, according to Meidinger, “the lower, at least tendentially, the level of performance — this has been shown by accompanying PISA studies.”
Meidinger also emphasized: “If a large part of the class can no longer follow the lesson at all, the teacher must of course lower the targets. The performance level of children without a migration background then falls too.”
