Germany during the Weimar Republic: School Curriculum

Figure 1.--This obviously staged photograph in 1928 shows Germnan boys in their class room working on a science project. The boys all wear sweaters. The boy at kleft wears rather long wool short pants with long stockings.

We do not have details on the curriculum at German schools during the Weimar Republic. Even after the dissaster of World War I and the ensuing ecoinimic difficulties, Germany continued to give a high priority to its educationalm system which continued to be perhaps the best in Europe. German teachers and parents continued to demand academoc excellence. We believe that both science and math were an important part of the curriculum, even at the primary level. This is a topic we need to persue in greater detail.
