Nationale Identitäten und ein gemeinschaftlicher Bildungsanspruch der EU – ein unauflöslicher Widerspruch?



This article raises the question whether there is a contradiction for the formal education between na-tional identities and a common European objective for education. This could be the case because the different educational systems are the result of old national traditions and the expression of national identities. The article gives an overview over the development of a European educational policy to clarify this tension between education and European identities.
