The paper of the speech by Christian Beck of May 25 is now available at his website:

The Decline of Modern Schooling and the Emergence of a New Civic Sector of Education

Abstract:

Pisa (2006) shows positive correlation between economical development and learning results in OECD-countries. But specially USA and Norway with highest gross national product per capita (GPC) and highly developed school systems have bad pisa results. Modern schools seem to have passed the peak. Still, more school is tried, to overcome the decline. Alternatives to school like home education, open free schools, unschooling, informal education etc. are not only a human right for minorities, but could be necessary experiments for future education, in general. The emergence of a new civic sector of modern education will be discussed.
