In Bavaria on Thursday has started a petition against the charges. To be successful in the next two weeks to ten percent of the Bavarian electors participate – that would be about 940,000 signatures. “I think that we will be passing the test,” said the mayor of Munich and the SPD’s top candidate for the upcoming state election, Christian Ude.
“Tuition fees are a violation of the principle that education should be free.” If this quorum is reached, the law provides two options, either sets of the concerns of the petition to parliament directly.In a survey of the Bavarian Radio recently, three-quarters of the electorate to abolish. The Bavarian Free Voters had last year sued the right to hold a referendum in court. For the organization of the referendum were the Free Voters an alliance with the SPD, Greens, Left, pirates, ODP and unions.
Against tuition fees

Prime Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) expects that the charges fall eventually anyway. Nevertheless, his party does not participate in the referendum. “A government cannot collect signatures against itself,” said Seehofer.
If the referendum against tuition fees is successful, the parliament will be in April or May need to position it. Whether the fees sought by opponents of a referendum could take place directly at the state election date, it remains questionable. Ulrike also Goth, university spokeswoman for the state parliament Greens, rejects the statement of Ruppert. The fear of the university president was indeed understandable, she says. “However, this should therefore not start a campaign against the current referendum”.
Important it is in the government to demand a reliable funding.Currently, only Bavaria and Lower Saxony still require tuition. In Lower Saxony, is elected on Sunday, Prime Minister David McAllister (CDU) wants in the case of an election victory to adhere to the charges. SPD and the Greens should win; they want to abolish the fees quickly. So shake the last bastions pay: In the past decade, seven countries had introduced tuition fees, five of them have already been abolished.
More immigrants, more working-class children, economic nearby: Stifterverband McKinsey and push for reform in higher education and decreasing dropout rates. Their study lauds the diversity in the student body. The new report is an education policy with the means of consulting. The study revealed not only what’s wrong from a business perspective in the education system, but expressed “measurable” goals for the coming decade, will provide clear recommendations and is to appear every year from now on a new focus.
In it, says McKinsey director Jürgen Schröder, the paper differs from all the other education reports and studies. With a little good will, it would be referred to, as Agenda 2020 for the universities, but it is not coordinated with the education policy makers at federal and state.
What is going to change in higher education?
The injustice of the education system. It starts in school and it is accordingly continuing in higher education. It comes to the children of immigrants from non-academic families. The problem is in regards to language barriers. Therefore, that the transition from school to higher education can be improved, in “taster” and “entry academies” to students are better prepared for the study – an addition to the high school.
In addition, universities are in big cities “Intergrationshochschulen” convert who care specifically for immigrants and other groups who study rare. The implementation of the Bologna reforms in Germany have led to distance that is more practical. Because in many bachelor’s degree programs, according to the study schedules are so tight that internships are no longer provided. Thus the proportion of courses went with required internships in the past five years of almost ten to just under seven percent.
Lack of training offered in the universities
There must be more flexible and more courses online offers. They would also have to fall as age barriers to student loans, so that old people can study. Over 70 percent of teachers are women, according to the study, only two percent are from abroad. Only the students would offer diversity. Why should the lateral entry to facilitate the teaching profession, and elementary school teachers especially need to earn more.
A former student describes in following her battle with post-school essays and interpretations. Interpretation was formerly a real horror for me word with disgust and some goose bumps came up. Yes, I have it, and in general with writing of essays it very difficult. Above all, I was not at all clear with the usual essay outline and structure.
In a word, I was not sure how I would implement introduction, body and conclusion sentence in my article. The teachers demanded that they structured their own written essay on this way. Of course they showed us many examples in class, like so should an essay structure correctly. When writing school essays I felt therefore very committed and concentrated. I was constantly plagued by manic thoughts and keeps track of whether I have been writing a proper introduction that sounds nice.
In addition, it was very difficult for me ever new reconciliation sets in the main part and conclusion imagine. Except for the transition, rates and the conjunctions were a big problem. Finally had to link words be different, so that the essay appeared not monotonous. I dreamed of without those annoying barriers to write, to write freely. Essays and interpretations of my discretion to devise to my mind, like them! Nevertheless, at school it was impossible.
Too bad, because that was the right approach.Now, which helped me to write, learn the essays to love the interpretation? Very hard work, exercise and very detailed analysis. What mattered was that I tried first to write without any scheme, and outlines. Just my thoughts and interpretations without any limitations I have put on paper and felt freer and better afterwards. Well I listened to the paper structure, introduction, body kit, circuit and wiring harnesses etc. and fit my article accordingly.
In addition, I practiced very hard, like crazy. I tried every day to write an interpretation besides my homework. I wrote several articles on various topics. In the end, all the work has been worthwhile.
