The head of the Mathematics Education Association, Reinhard Oldenburg, told the German News Agency that students receive more feedback than they do in Germany, after Germany’s poor results in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) study. In Asian and Eastern European countries, much more subjects are taught than here. The professor explained that the curriculum in Germany is very clear. Between 30 and 40 percent of the content has been removed in the past 20 years – and only a moderate amount has been added.
Regarding the results of the Program for International Student Assessment, the Secretary General of the Federal Student Congress, Fabricius, stressed that the mental health of students is hardly measured. Stress and depression levels did not play a role. Aspects such as economic, democratic and vocational training are also neglected.
In the latest Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) study, German 15-year-olds performed worse than ever before. The deficit compared to other European countries was particularly evident in reading, mathematics and natural sciences.
