Since 2019, the Robert Bosch Stiftung has regularly commissioned representative surveys on the current situation of schools in Germany, which are published as the German School Barometer. The German School Barometer makes it possible to describe developments at an early stage by recording and examining the observations and assessments of those people who help shape and experience schools on a daily basis. This includes school administrators, teachers, parents, students and other educational staff. Current challenges and strategies of schools can thus be identified and possible recommendations for decision-makers in the education system can be derived. The German School Barometer also allows comparisons to be made between regions and types of school, for example.
