Nearly 16.6 million people in Germany attend formal educational institutions - this is a fifth of the total population. Education promises social advancement to the individual and is conjured as a universal solution for many challenges facing our society: demographic change, crisis of democracy, transformation to a knowledge society, the growing gap between rich and poor, international competitiveness - and even climate change. Correspondingly large is the range of expectations and demands, which are addressed by parents, pupils, students, teachers, unions, academics, trade associations, politicians and many more on education policy.
