HRK on the "Quality Offensive in Teacher Training": the first step towards better funding has been taken
"The HRK has been emphasising for some time that teacher training is not being adequately funded," explained the HRK Vice-President for Teaching and Studying, Holger Burckhart, after today's publication of the first decisions on the "Quality Offensive in Teacher Training" by the federal and state governments. "There is now some movement with regard to funding with the initial decisions now having been published. Politicians have therefore recognised the importance of teacher training for the entire educational system in Germany. We hope that the number of people funded will increase significantly in the next round and that there will be a broader regional distribution."
