(Financial) basic education between empowerment, competence acquisition and social inclusion
This special issue focuses on the „pedagogical view“ on the subject of „basic education“. In the currently running national decade for literacy and basic education 2016-2026 in which up to 180 million euros are invested, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research wants to promote literacy projects, as well as course concepts and self-learning opportunities. The previous national literacy and basic education strategy (2012-2016), with two priority areas (research and development of adult literacy and basic education, 2007-2012; and work place oriented adult literacy and basic education, 2012-2015. This strategy had already made enormous financial efforts, and especially for the educational profession and discipline, it has provided not only a variety of (temporary) employment opportunities, but also research results (eg the leo.-Level-One study). In the international discourse, literacy and basic education are referred to as „literacy“ and generally as „basic skills“. In addition to the focus on written language and literacy, they also include skills in the area of basic mathematical knowledge („numeracy“) and further differentiation „Financial literacy“, „political literacy“, „health literacy“ and much more, dealing with specific problems in everyday life. International contributions are therefore explicitly welcome and actively requested. Training concepts, curricula and professions-based „contributions“ about limits or even problems with regard to a possibly „reinforcing“ exclusion are also very welcome and can be submitted as so-called headline articles without review procedures to the editors of the this issue (see author’s notes).
