On June 8, 1955, Dr. Alina M. Lindegren of the United States Office of Education, arrived in Bonn for a 6-week educational visit to the Federal Republic of Germany. When she mentioned that she had been on a similar mission to Germany in 1935 she was told, "Much has, happened since then. We believe you will find many changes." Much had happened - World War II and a decade of postwar recovery. In the following pages the author tells of some of the changes in education which she saw or felt. The purpose of this Bulletin is to note the changes or trends in education in the Federal Republic of Germany as seen or felt in 1955 by one who, 20 years before in 1935, had similar firsthand contact with education in Germany. Reference to education in other periods is made to the extent necessary for an understanding and appreciation of the significance of the changes made or in progress. A bibliography is provided. (Contains 6 graphs and 45 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.].

The importance of early childhood education has been emphasized by a large body of research that has demonstrated that children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development is significantly influenced by the quality of the education and care received from their families and in preschool. Consequently, it is important to investigate factors that pertain to the provision of a high-quality education and high-quality care for young children. This book addresses several important issues that are currently under discussion with respect to this topic. In particular, the book focuses on three topics presently under debate: the professionalization of pedagogues working in the field of early childhood education; the quality of education and care provided by families and preschools; and the promotion of children from socio-economically disadvantaged families. Providing an excellent overview of current research in Germany, this book will be useful to readers who are interested in international perspectives on early childhood education and who want to gain insight into relevant topics discussed in other countries. This book was originally published as a special issue of Early Child Development and Care.

This volume focuses on cross-curricular and extra-curricular activities within the broader context of citizenship education in secondary schools in Germany. It sets out the background and history of citizenship education in Germany before moving on to selected case studies of specific activities in secondary schools in different federal states in eastern and western Germany. These case studies focus on activities centred on two main topics – intercultural education and the National Socialist period in Germany. These activities are not part of formal schooling, but rather represent examples of young people and teachers engaging in citizenship education beyond the classroom – or, in a positive sense, 'not doing it by the book'.

Shaping the minds of the future generation was pivotal to the Nazi regime in order to ensure the continuing success of the Third Reich. Through the curriculum, the elite schools and youth groups, the Third Reich waged a war for the minds of the young. Hitler understood the importance of education in creating self-identity, inculcating national pride, promoting 'racial purity' and building loyalty. The author examines how Nazism took shape in the classroom via school textbook policy, physical education and lessons on Nationalist Socialist heroes and anti-Semitism. Offering a compelling new analysis of Nazi educational policy, this book brings to the forefront an often-overlooked aspect of the Third Reich.
