Why study, work, have children with graduation less likely than those with academically educated parents, even though they already have the permission acquired? Now, the social selectivity of the schools is indisputable. In dispute is only whether there is any school system that could compensate for the differences in Education between the families ever.

but there is work for children that want to have in spite of all the adversities and disadvantages of their Educational background up to high school due to being bitten and then not study, among educational researchers, such as Educational policy-makers as a Nuisance. That a decision against the study of well-thought-out reasons could be, that one could interpret them, even as an act of informed self-determination, is considered downright absurd assumption. And the idea that talent could be a simple vocational training, waste, as a socially and politically unbearable. But from the acquisition of the high school compulsory to study a Mature be derived? Must also, who can?

in Particular, the ascenders of the “educationally disadvantaged” families. The toughness of a work child with school-leaving examination seem to predestine it for a successful academic career. It denies this, nevertheless, must be due to other barriers. Employees of the Berlin science centre (WZB) have found them by now. It is the formal admission restrictions at German universities, in more detail: the confusion, the havoc you are entitled to under the Study. The Thesis of the WZB-researchers Claudia Finger, Cindy Fitzner and Judith Heinmüller is, in fact, that this confusion is socially stratified. The complexity of the high school additions was for families without a higher education experience is larger than for academically advanced families. Working children do not study so easy and less because you or your parents in the application process simply by looking?


On the Basis of data from the Berlin study entitled-panel Best Up have tried to the authors of the study first, to create a total overview of the actual restrictions on the access to German universities. Based on the information of the Best-Up respondents, this Panel, the information access arrangements of more than 400 courses. Conclusion of the authors: Even if the Numbers of the Panels is expected to be slightly distorted, the number is actually completely admission-free study programmes in only five to ten percent. To open only the minority of the degree courses at German universities, the baccalaureate automatically the door.
