INSIDE: Survey of students has begun

5/16/2019

At the beginning of May, the surveys of students with and without special educational needs have started as part of the second substudy of the project “INSIDE–Inclusive Education in Lower Secondary Schools in Germany”.

Last year, the first part of the study of the INSIDE project—a nationwide online survey of school administrations—was completed. Now, at the beginning of May, the surveys of the second part of the study have started. The focus here is on the conditions and consequences of students with and without special educational needs studying together in the same classroom. The survey will be conducted among school principals and teachers as well as students and their parents.

For the first time, INSIDE provides comprehensive, reliable information as part of a review of the current state of the implementation of educational inclusion in secondary schools. The project shows how educational inclusion is organized in Germany and under which conditions inclusion leads to successful individual development of students with and without special educational needs.

INSIDE is a cooperation between the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi), the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB), the University of Wuppertal (BUW), and the University of Potsdam (UP). The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
