Beschreibung:
Human capital is a key factor for growth and prosperity of nations. Due to the crucial role of education, Germany?s bad performance in PISA 2000 was a major shock which induced heated and mostly ideologically driven debates on problems of the current school system and necessary reforms. The first part of this lecture deals with the role of education for the economic development of countries and the effects of schooling on wages and the risk of getting unemployed. Apart from these labor market related impacts, we also look at the effects of schooling on health, crime, and social engagement. It becomes apparent that education is not only about cognitive but also about non-cognitive skills. The second part of the lecture evolves around the question how school systems should be designed in order to provide the best possible results for children and youths. In addition to the role of early childhood education, we focus on the effects of class size, (early) educational tracking, school autonomy, school accountability, central exams, competition between schools, and the impact of teachers. This analysis is based on an in-depth inspection of current empirical research papers.
