Bildungsstudie: German university top in MINT graduates, catching up with primary school students

              An international comparison reveals light and shadow in German education: the government is cheering the impetus for future-oriented courses. The opposition complained about the underfunding of primary schools.
            
            
            
                    
            When it comes to education in the future-oriented MINT disciplines of mathematics, computer sciences, natural sciences and technology, Germany's universities occupy a top position. The percentage of graduates in these study subjects is 37 per cent in the Federal Republic and therefore as high as in any other industrial country. This is evident from the annual comparative study published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on Tuesday in Berlin. Education Minister Johanna Wanka (CDU) is confirmed by the results. She spoke of "good news for the High Techland Germany".
In other respects, however, the report also shows considerable catching up. While the 35 OECD countries spend an average of 5.2 per cent of their gross domestic product on education, Germany stands at just 4.3 per cent. This difference has been constant for a decade and stands for a difference of some 30 billion euros per year, explained Heino von Meyer, head of the Berlin OECD Center. This difference is felt among the German primary schools, for example, with an annual expenditure of 8546 US dollars per primary school, Germany is below the OECD average of 8733 dollars.
Poor products, but no academic sweat
The education union GEW described this as "poor testimony for such a rich country". Green education expert Kai Gehring added: "Violent tax surpluses and underfunded educational institutions do not fit together." CDU / CSU faction Michael Kretschmer (CDU), on the other hand, emphasized: "Anyone who now badges Germany as a place of education is better informed by the OECD figures."
In fact, the report has positive aspects for Germany: the proportion of university graduates in 2005 rose from 43 to 63 percent, which is more than in any other industrialized country. "Germany's most important raw material is the competence of its citizens", emphasized Meyer. In view of the fact that such figures should be warned of an academic flood, it is therefore a misguided fact.
In other areas, however, the study diagnoses stagnation in Germany. The education of adults and so-called social mobility is something that OECD education researcher Andreas Schleicher has a lot of catching up to do. The percentage of university graduates whose parents do not have a corresponding degree has been stagnating below the 15 percent mark for years.
