Drawing on the work and... more...

  • Im Reformhausby Anne Hamilton; Jürgen Kaube

    zu Klampen 2015; US$ 12.91

    Die deutsche Bildungspolitik glänzt durch Kurzatmigkeit und Reformeifer. Kaum ein Jahr vergeht, ohne dass die Kultusministerien umfangreiche Richtlinien und Erlässe verabschieden und deren prompte Umsetzung einklagen. Gleichbehandlung ist das Zauberwort, die Folgen ihrer Verwirklichung bleiben unreflektiert. Mittlerweile wird das Abitur als Instrument... more...
