Download Bildungskontexte: Strukturelle Voraussetzungen und Ursachen by Rolf Becker,Alexander (Eds.) Schulze,Alexander Schulze PDF

By Rolf Becker,Alexander (Eds.) Schulze,Alexander Schulze

Gemäß dem meritokratischen Prinzip sollte alleine die Leistung eines Schülers, gemessen u.a. durch Schulnoten oder Bildungsempfehlungen, dessen Bildungschancen bestimmen. Jedoch weist die empirische Bildungsforschung darauf hin, dass das deutsche Bildungssystem diesem Anspruch bei weitem und bis heute nicht gerecht wird. So belegen zahlreiche Studien ausgeprägte Ungleichheiten der Bildungschancen nach sozialer und ethnischer Herkunft sowie nach Geschlecht und sector. Dabei gehen die angesprochenen empirischen Analysen (und die jeweils zugrunde liegenden theoretischen Konzepte) jedoch implizit häufig davon aus, dass alleine individuelle Determinanten und Ressourcen des Elternhauses für die festgestellten Bildungsungleichheiten ursächlich sind und es somit für die Bildungschancen vernachlässigbar ist, in welchen Bildungskontexten – wie etwa Schule, Schulklasse, Wohngegend, zone oder soziales Netzwerk – sich eine Schülerin oder ein Schüler befindet. Neuere Untersuchungen auf foundation von Mehrebenen- und Längsschnittanalysen zeigen allerdings, dass neben dem Wandel gesellschaftlicher Kontexte und der growth von Bildungsgelegenheiten auch die Bedingungen in den Schulen, Klassen und Regionen sowie die Lehrkräfte und die Zusammensetzung des Freundeskreises der Schülerinnen und Schüler einen erheblichen Einfluss auf den individuellen Bildungserfolg haben.
