Education is not for free

Working for education… this is a joke a lot of countries actually practice. But it is not the governments fault entirely. Of course the government could say they would take more taxes and you would not have to pay for education individually but that is not the right way.

The right way is to get people who have had a life full of experience to tell others about it.

Tell children about the language you have used, tell children about the troubles you had. Tell them how to do your job better than you did… by telling them what you have learned.

Education is important.

Make a difference but educating those who cannot educate themselves. You do not need a masters degree to do that. You do not need to be called a professor to do that. What you need is to be human enough to help other humans, help the world.

Without education this entire civilization as we call it is going down. No education means no future. So start helping today, help in your own way.

Do not request payment to save the future of the entire human race. Educate whenever you can. Share your experience, share your thoughts. Not because you feel better but because you can help.

What a mess!

To put it simple:

The german educational system is a mess!

I am not just talking about the change from 13 years of school to 12, but I am also talking about the further education including university.

Right now I am in my second semester of business information systems(bis) and it seems like there might be some confusion on the teaching part of the branch of study.

The current students on my course of studies have to learn about 800 DIN A4 pages of business economics whereas the current students in business administration(BA), which represents the major of learning about business economics, have a summed up number of 18 pages to study. I am aware that my major is a combination of the two fields of computer engineering and business administration but it seems like the professors teaching the subjects actually are not. How can it be possible to make those who do basically two degrees at the same time learn about 45 times as much as those who just major in one degree, especially if the course I am talking about is their main focus during their time at university. This is sick.

Throughout my university and from peope at other universities, too, I have heard similar things on different subjects/courses. How is it possible that this is a fair and even competition.

A friend of mine just told about an hour ago that the university actually stated to try to clear up their majors by a certain degree, but it seems like they do not do that for every subject to the same amount. On the example shown above the average grades in business administration are at about the level of 2.1 which is fairly good, whereas the average grade of my field of studies is at about 4.0.

In my eyes this is not quite what it should be like. But well who decides such things? Not us, the students.
