Imports and abolish

At the topic of students, the parties demonstrate the rough difference. What the one depended, raise the others again

When the inelegance in Hesse, Lower Saxony and Hamburg at the beginning of the year were asked for voting, one of their most difficult challenges was to identify crucial differences between democratic candidates and parties. Here and there, of course, one became reasoning: in energy policy, for example, in some areas of economic and fiscal policy and always when it comes to the reform of the education system.

Of course, not only the spirits discussed for many years of controversy have been divided, but also the legislative and practical maws. During the CDU and FDP have already introduced the campuswaut in seven federal stanchars, SPD, GROUND and LINKE oblige to be charged for the study-free initial studies and threaten in the case of a positive success of all the arts with the fastest possible return of the decluses.

There are occasional compromise variations. Thus, the North Rhine-Westfal regional government has released the universities the decision on the importation and also over the highest degrees of study, which resulted in single traps of strong demand-oriented regulations (estimation of protesters).

In Hamburg, the first black-grune government coalition on Landel level also wants to deviate from the lump-sum control (500 euros per semester) and instead claim 375 euros per semester. However, the transactions must only be paid after completing studies and only then if the graduates are a gross annual income of more than 30.Reach 000 euros.

"Urgent bill"

In Hesse, the fronts are known and compromises are not in sight. Over this, SPD boss Andrea Ypsilanti can hardly afford to handle the declaration of election promises as flexible as she tried when dealing with the Left Party. No wonder so that the arance that students introduced at the winter semester 2007/2008 after just one year after only one year, should now be followed as soon as possible.

SPD and Bundnis 90 / Grunen brought at 7. April a joint draft bill in the Hessian state parliament, which should already set the appropriate provisions of the Student Metrology Act to the winter semester 2008/09. The ever-rich and always Burgernahe Linke wants to go one step further and with its own request to ensure that the students will be reimbursed to the previously paid contributions on request in full. If RED-GRUN does not support this "customer-friendly" scheme, the left to the application of opposition colleagues do not want to refuse.

In addition to the general degrees of study of 500 euros per semester, SPD, Grune and Linke also want to abolish the contribution for a long-term and second studies completely. In order to balance the decreasing loss of around 104 million euros for the Hessian universities, the lack of amounts are now "generated in the budget" and "in particular by minor ies" are to be refinanced. Therefore, there are no rosy times for long-term students, because Red-Grun wants to build the duration of a non-recourse studies on clear rules.

After the end of the Standard Studies of Studies and after the second semester of the secondary course, the university has to be carried out by the University of Official Provisions. If the surveillance of the required performance status is not available, the university sets in a consultation with the or students to prove adequate study progress at the end of the following semester. If this proof is not without the right reason, the students can be exmatriculated.

Urgent bill of factions of the SPD and Bundnis 90 / Grunen for a law for ensuring equal opportunities for Hessian universities

Despite the comparatively moderate governmental declaration of Minister Prosident Roland Koch, in the managed CDU government, this proposals. With the regulation made in North Rhine-Westphalia, the decision to put the status of universities, as it is now also proposed by the FDP, one could still make friends, but the abolition of the bonds for long-term students will find the university policy spokeswoman of the state fraction, Eva Khne Hormann, simply "incredible". The studied lawyer and former Burolder at the Oberburgmaster of the city of Kassel absolutely aims to prevent "the general public" for "strolling students". But their chances are not good. According to the planning of the applicants, the second and third reading of the bill is to take place in the coming week. The guided government was able to force a fourth reading, but hardly stop the new regulation to the upcoming winter semester.

Regardless of the parliamentary strategy games, the provisions of the Student Contribution Act is only subject to reserve. Before the Hessian State Court of State, a standards control procedure and a lawsuit against the Studienetemungsetungsgesetz is presented by more than 70.000 Burgers is supported. They believe that students make an opportunity to make an opportunity to understand their abolition and want to enforce their abolition in court. If the judges share this point of view of things, translating regulations must be made anyway.

Economicity VS. Financial grade

That students encountered the social selectivity of the German education system, if insufficient financing, such as scholarships are created, is concerned. On the other hand, the chronic under-financed universities relied on additional funding in order to lose further connection in the areas of research, teaching and equipment. Bavaria’s Science Minister Thomas Goppel (CSU) presented new numbers on Monday, which show how much the student contributions are now part of the financial planning.

Accordingly, the Bavarian universities alone received around 145 million euros by the introduction of students ago a year ago, which were ied by official information predominantly "for additional teaching staff as well as to improve the library offer and the IT infrastructure". Although the ASTA of the University of Augsburg is probably used, which 40 percent of this amount was mainly used, "to stuff punches and to put technical acquisitions," but also the 300 euros per semester proposed by the student representatives were demonstrably study.

The summed up waking nationwide desires. Even Lander, who has not yet introduced a campus maut, can hardly resist the cash of money. Thus, the CDU Schleswig-Holstein, which had actually agreed with the Groben coalition partner SPD actually agreed on a foreign initial study, of these days, whether it is not useful to focus at least at the "Hamburger Model".

10 semesters for 46.000 EURO

Furthermore, there is a limited extent that students can be amed to participate in the cost of their education. Finally, the perception of continuing education offers or the acquisition of additional qualifications is often due to the payment of participation camps, examination:.a. bound.

However, the German Studentenwerk now brings a little-respected argument in the discussion. Prasident Rolf Dobischat presented on the 11. Regional educational forum in Dortmund numbers, which make the financial burden of prospective academics appear in a completely different light. Accordingly, a two-sized study in Germany already costs no more than 55 without studies.000 EURO. Who studies only ten semesters, still needs good 46.I000 euros, and even the six semester masters are still on 28.000 EURO.

These calculations are based on the 770 euros, the students in Germany according to the social collection of the 2006 student plant of 2006 are available per month. If you now pay averaging 500 euros of suggestions, the values mentioned again significantly increase to then 61.000 (12 semesters), 51.000 (10 semesters) or 31.000 (6 semesters) euros.

The educational and university policy in Germany must be in addition to the institutional costs, which costs, for example, a study place the state, must also take the individual cost of studying. We need more gifted young people from higher education, income-weak families. The actual costs are currently playing the key role in the decision for or against studying and much less the expected educational yield or the later income.

Rolf Dobischat

The Prassident of the German Studentenwerk also pointed out in this context that at the moment 90 percent of all students with an average of 448 euros per month are supported by their parents. Thus, the parental contribution forms the most important sailla of study finance in Germany.

Unsatisfied customers

If students (and their parents) are to be made via students to customers of the education system, the question arises as to whether they can expect at least appropriate consideration. Thereafter, however, it does not look at the moment, even if the totality of the study reforms in some specialist disciplines is quite positive resonance.

However, according to a preliminary survey of the study finance Career Concept AG, there are just 5 percent of the students of the statement, libraries and rechargeable space had improved qualitatively or quantitatively qualitatively or quantitatively in the past, privileged year. Three out of four junior academics (76.5 percent), on the other hand, could not detect change. With the much criticized teaching, the situation looks a bit better. 23 percent exercise positively to the number of teachers and individual support. Almost two-thirds (65.8 percent) of the students, however, believe that they are poorly or insufficiently looked after at the universities. Satisfied customers have probably become different.
