Re­flec­tions on bar­ri­ers and dis­crim­i­na­tion in ed­u­ca­tion­al in­sti­tu­tions

This text is concerned with self-reflexivity in institutions regarding the critique of barriers and discrimination. Who studies, who teaches and who cleans up in «our» institution? Are there differences in the constitution of these groups concerning ascriptions of ethnicity, salary and gender relations? The text discusses research on educational (in-)justice in different educational systems and the different perspectives of explanation and action the researchers bring forward. It advocates an analysis and didactics that is reflexive concerning barriers and discrimination, that takes heterogeneity as the „normal case“ and provides the most individual support possible with low barriers and discrimination.
