Study on the development of all-day schools (StEG)

The establishment and expansion of all-day school offers plays an important role in the current debate on education reform. As a part of the investment program "Zukunft Bildung und Betreuung" (IZBB), the states and the federal government have not only invested in an expanded infrastructure, but also want to promote the educational quality of all-day schools. The study on the development of all-day schools - StEG, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and using resources from the European Social Fund (ESF), is investigating how this can succeed. As a scientific accompanying study on the development of all-day schools, StEG, was carried out in three phases: First 2005 to 2011, second 2012-2015 and third 2016 to 2019.[NL1] 

In the first phase, longitudinal surveys were conducted with all groups of people involved in all-day schooling: Students at different grade levels, their parents/ guardians, school administrators, teachers, other pedagogically active staff, and the cooperation partners involved in all-day programs. A total of more than 50,000 people from over 300 schools were surveyed repeatedly in three survey waves - in 2005, 2007 and 2009. The results of the study are documented in a results brochure and in numerous book and journal articles. The results volume on all three survey waves of the first funding phase was published by Juventa in 2011.
