A lot must go wrong when the nation’s highest spending on education leads not to success, but to the second-lowest student performance in the nation. But what is not happening in Berlin and why?

In their joint book “Struggle of classes. What can education policy learn from the Berlin school disaster?” these questions continue. The book premiere with reading and discussion this Thursday at Urania is about the answers.

Not only the core areas in which Berlin falls short of its potential or even fails grotesquely, such as teacher supply, are addressed.

Failures in early care will also be discussed. Because since 2008 politics and administration have failed to implement a law that provides for compulsory language support for children with no knowledge of German and without a place in day care.

These examples of organized incompetence, combined with ideological stubbornness, lead to one of the worst-functioning school systems in Germany. But how can this be changed? This is also what the presentation of the book, which was published by Suhrkamp Verlag, is about. It will be moderated by educational journalist Jan-Martin Wiarda.

Event: Urania Berlin, An der Urania 17, Schöneberg, March 24, 7:30 p.m. Admission: 11 euros, reduced 9 euros. Information and tickets: www.urania.de (teaspoonful)
