The figures from the ministry of education speak a clear language: in the district of starnberg, about 58 percent of children attended a grammar school in 2010, in the district of regen in the bavarian forest just under 30 percent. If bavaria's divided school system is really geartungsgerecht, love that only one possible explanation to: in starnberg live twice as many children with the necessary gymnasialintelligenz as in the homeland of minister of agriculture helmut brunner (CSU).
But all experts actually assume that the young people of lower bavaria are at least as smart as the young people of starnberg. The reason for such regional discrepancies is only partly to be found in the school system. The figures also provide clear evidence that many parents are not lucky when it comes to choosing the right school.
