Feasibility study: Monitor civic educationFeasibility study: Monitor civic education

The project Feasibility Study for a Monitor of Civic and Citizenship Education investigates the technical and statistical conditions under which a periodic report on civic and citizenship education in Germany can be established. Such a data-based and criteria-driven monitor should provide information on the situation of civic and citizenship education in different sectors. The particular aim is to enable evidence-based decisions for effective improvements in educational policy and practice. The project is conducted in cooperation with colleagues from the universities of Bielefeld, Göttingen and Cologne. At the University of Essen, a special focus lies on civic and citizenship education in higher education.
