Education: vocational schools are often without WLAN

Friday, September 8th, 2017 | Gadgets

Germany's vocational schools are poorly equipped with information technology. This was the result of an internal analysis by the Federal Ministry of Economics, which the Editorial Network of Germany (RND) reports to the
Leipziger Volkszeitung, the Hannoversche Allgemeine, the Märkische Allgemeine, the Kieler Nachrichten, and the Hildesheimer Allgemeine. "For example, no WLAN is available in 40 percent of vocational schools," the paper says.

Moreover, "many vocational schools lack the necessary equipment and strategy as well as personnel and temporal resources". Only 23 percent of vocational schools had developed a strategy for digitization. In 50 percent of the schools there is no external support for information technology.
Minister of Economic Affairs, Brigitte Zypries (SPD), called for the provision of one billion euros to eliminate the biggest shortcomings in the 9,000 vocational schools in Germany.
Appeals from the Minister
"Technical equipment, software, or WLAN are short-lived in our vocational schools, but at the same time young people should be fit for a professional life in a digitized business world," said Zypries to the German editorial team.
The billions program of Federal Minister of Education Johanna Wanka (CDU) for the IT equipment in schools and vocational schools is in the meantime ahead. Wanka had declared in October 2016 that with the Plan DigitalpaktD, the federal government would provide a fast Internet connection, WLAN hotspots and computers to all around 40,000 schools in Germany in the coming five years. For this, the federal government would provide five billion euros. But in March 2017 it was reported that Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble (CDU) Wanka no money for the digitization of the schools.
