Back to the basics

Follow-up to Americanisation rather than commodification? from The URSS Blog

Today, I reopened my research on the current discussion on higher education reform. The reason for doing this, despite already having written a first draft report, was that I had simply forgotten to do so.
Most of the morning I spend researching the OECD source side which proved to be very helpful for statistics of the German economy as a whole, but also for its education system in particular. But it had more to offer, I found out that it publishes its own periodical on education issues, which offered plenty of literature on recent debates on higher education. The current German problems in education as a whole were covered in the most recent economic outlook on Germany. All in all I was pleased to have consulted the site.
Following this I visited some of the ‘think tanks’ who continued to come up in my reading. On these sites I was less successful than I expected. Either I did not search properly or they did not publish the white papers I was looking for only.
Exactly this was the case with the commission of the state governments (KMK). They only referred to their publications, without giving the option to access them online.

Anyway, now I have a good top up for my reading if we decide to continue focusing on the German reforms in more detail
