What we stand for
Climate change, migration movements and the reshaping of the digital media landscape are developments affecting German society, and, ultimately, the world as a whole. They have a massive impact on the reality of German education, too. These developments, which directly affect both the school and higher education systems, are fundamentally shifting the problems of education politics.
The German education system is facing challenges that require new answers. Pisa and Bologna have reached a dead end and are not helping any further. The current problems call for more reflection on the fundamentals. Questions must be asked anew about what an education system can, should and wants to achieve.
In addition to the resumption of a fundamental discussion on education politics, however, the system must be adapted to the new circumstances during ongoing operations. This requires new ideas and pragmatic solutions, which must be found in controversial discussions.
This is what the IMSW stands for with its many years of experience in German educational reality.
