School & University

Education is of paramount importance for individuals’ chances to participate in society. However, although this notion is beyond controversy, it has lead to heated debates about the merits and demerits of certain models of education. Education has become a benchmark of how just a society is. The Heinrich Böll Foundation promotes a republican education system, one that ensures that all students reach a minimum level of skills. The only way to achieve this is if schools shoulder the responsibility accordingly.

Universities are core institutions of every modern society. Today, on the path towards a knowledge society they are becoming more and more important and, at the same time, the demands made on them are reaching ever new heights. Universities are meant to be engines of innovation and to prompt economic momentum, to provide job skills and thus foster social inclusion, to promote critical thinking, to function as hubs of regional development, and, through their research, provide answers to crucial challenges we will be facing in the near future. How can we enable them to achieve all of the above?
