Berlin und die Bildung

Wirbt nicht gerade irgendeine Partei im Berliner Abgeordnetenhauswahlkampf damit, daß Berlin am meisten in die Bildung der Bürger investiert? Der aktuelle Bildungsmonitor sagt da was anderes:

Zu arm, um gut zu sein: Dies ist, knapp gesagt, das Berliner Ergebnis des aktuellen „Bildungsmonitors” der Initiative Neue Soziale Marktwirtschaft. Demnach landet Berlin auf dem drittletzten Platz – nur vor Bremen und Nordrhein-Westfalen -, weil es aufgrund seiner Haushaltslage nicht genug in Kitas, Schulen und Hochschulen investieren kann. Der Ländervergleich, der gestern vorgestellt wurde, beruht auf Daten von 2003 und 2004. Vergangenes Jahr belegte Berlin Platz elf.

Vielleicht hätte da die betreffende Partei bzw. deren Werbeagentur bischen mehr über Dichtung und Wahrheit lesen sollen.

“On September 9, 2006, 112 of the world’s great minds will come together around the world’s largest round table at Berlin’s historic Bebelplatz square. Recorded by 112 digital cameras, they will simultaneously answer 100 questions chosen out of thousands donated by the global public. The resulting 600+ hours of audiovisual content will launch an unprecedented online resource: a knowledge portal and dialog forum created to host a global conversation covering the most pressing questions of our time.”

Most courteous

Sometimes I wonder how those surveys are conducted. Maybe by bribing the author? Well, in any case, some people voted Berlin to be ranked #4 for the most courteous. Aside from all the love for Berlin, but people, who did you get in touch with for this? I can’t really relate.

And the New Yorkers seem to do even better. Vienna is also on the list, but for example I would have expected them to do better than us. And Manila was featured to be Asia’s most courteous, congrats to them. London & Paris seem to be the taillights in this competition.

Kreuzberg verpflichtet? So, so! Und wieso eigentlich? Oder versucht die nette Frau Kosche nur ein Direktmandat in Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain im Stil von Ströbele zu erhaschen?
