According to collegesanduniversitiesinusa, Germany is known for its excellent educational system, which has evolved over the centuries. The first universities in Germany were established in the 13th century by the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II. These universities focused primarily on theology and law. Over time, more universities were established in various cities throughout Germany, and education became increasingly important to German society. By the 19th century, there was a widespread emphasis on education and German schools began to offer more diverse curriculums that included science, philosophy, and language studies. During this period, state-funded schools began to emerge as well as private institutions of higher learning. In 1919, after World War I ended, a new constitution was adopted which made education compulsory for all children up to age 14. This law provided access to free public schooling for all children regardless of their social or economic backgrounds. The post-World War II period saw an expansion of educational opportunities with the introduction of vocational training programs and universal secondary education. Today, Germany’s educational system is one of the most advanced in Europe with a high level of student achievement across all levels of schooling. In 2009, Germany was a major player in the European Union and its foreign policy was shaped by its commitments to international organizations. Germany’s relations with other European countries were strong, particularly with France and the United Kingdom. Germany also maintained strong ties with the United States, which had been a key ally since World War II. At the same time, Germany sought to strengthen ties with Russia and China, two of its most important trading partners. In terms of international security, Germany was a staunch supporter of NATO and worked closely with the organization on matters related to global terrorism and regional conflicts. Domestically, Germany had undergone a period of political change in 2009 as it experienced its first change in government since 1998 when Angela Merkel became Chancellor after winning federal elections that year. Merkel became the first female leader of Germany and her government focused on modernizing the economy while maintaining fiscal responsibility. Under her leadership, Germany implemented economic reforms such as increasing labor market flexibility, reducing corporate taxes, and introducing renewable energy sources like wind and solar power into the national energy mix. The federal government also sought to reduce unemployment by expanding welfare programs for those out of work or without sufficient income. Check mathgeneral for Germany in 2017.
