Quality managment by marking schemes dumping

Competence to compensate incompetence conceals the failure of school reforms

It has long been all over town: The meth- ods of alleged “quality management” in ed- ucation do not lead to greater knowledge and skills, rather they conceal the fact that students know less and are capable of less. Ever more beginners, particularly in the natural sciences, lack basic knowledge and skills to successfully take up and complete their studies. However, the kind of trou- ble caused by ministerial guidelines which teacher teams are facing and let out only be- hind closed doors, is something the public must know about.
