Abstract

While the majority of the European countries has replaced the traditional (“old European”), selective, subdivided lower secondary educational system by comprehensive schools during the last decades, Germany and Austria cling to the euphemistically so-called “subdivided” system. German comprehensive schools do not meet the criteria which have been established for this type of school and must therefore be called “pseudo”-comprehensive schools. The proposal to replace the German system by a binary one will be hardly promising if one regards the problems of the Austrian school system which has already been binary for decades.

Keywords
