Einige Bemerkungen zur Zukunft der europäischen (Aus)Bildung. Oder: Zehn Jahre Weißbuch ‚Lehren und Lernen‘ der Europäischen Kommission1
Ten years ago the European Commission published the White Paper ‘Teaching and Learning’. It describes the European society as being in a “transitional phase towards a new form of society”. In the Commission’s view education can give two main answers to the complex changes: Reintroducing a broad base of knowledge and building up employability. To combat social exclusion is regarded as one of the central general objectives of education. This article argues that ten years later the main issues of the White Paper should now be a priority on the European agenda and should be more seriously reflected in current strategies of educational reform in Germany.
