Education – the backbone of a brighter future

 

Dear {NAME[std:Reader]},

How fair is education? How effective are different educational concepts? These are questions addressed by empirical education research in Germany, which we present in this edition. You can also read how a Dutch psychologist is researching how political attitudes can be changed, learn about current funding programmes, discover our number of the month and find out how an avatar can help us prepare for a job interview.
