History

The most important facts that can be found about Germany are connected to wars.

The World Wars were a disaster for Germany. It led to the divide of Germany. One of

the major theme of German history, according to William Spencer (1994) is division.

This seems to be a common occurrence but doesn’t represent a departure from German

history. Spencer noted that Germany has had difficulty during its 2000 year history in

becoming a nation-state and maintaining that form, even with the development of a

Education System

The German education system is very extensive and produces highly educated

students. The federal states run the education system. Like the United States, you can

find differences in the education should you go to another state. (How to Germany,

2012)

Children age’s three to six go to kindergarten. It is required that children go to

school in Germany for 9 to 10 years. The elementary school is called the Grundschule.

The children go to the Grundschule from grades 1 to 4. All children are taught the same

math, reading, and english. Based on there academic achievement, the children are then

separated. There are three different kinds of schools that can be chosen for the children:

Hauptschule, Realschule or Gymnasium. (How to Germany, 2012)

In most German states grades 5 to 9 are called the Hauptschule, which teaches at a

slower pace and has some vocational training courses. The Hauptschule, the Realschule

and Gymnasium all teach the same subjects. It leads to part-time enrollment in a

vocational school combined with internship training. (How to Germany, 2012)

The Realschule which children go from grades 5 to 10 leads to part-time

vocational schooling. The students with high academic achievement at the Realschule can

switch to a Gymnasium once they graduate. (How to Germany, 2012)

The Gymnasium leads to a diploma called the Abitur and prepares students for

college, dual academic or vocational credential. The most common education tracks

offered by the Gymnasium are classical language, modern language, and mathematics-

natural science. In recent years many States have changed the curriculum so students can

get their diploma at the end of the 12th grade. Other States are making the transition but

may still require a 13th grade. (How to Germany, 2012)

Grundschule teachers recommend their students to a particular school based on

such things as academic achievement, self confidence and the ability to work

independently. Germany is like the United States, at the end of the day it is the parents

who have the final say as to which school their child attends.

The Gesamtschule which has been recently developed takes the place of the

Hauptschule and Realschule and is only found in some of the states. The...
