Artikel Bild Antiquity Connects: A Project for European Cultural Education
Education has to prepare children for the life in the modern world. So many
people ask: Why should children learn an ancient language which no-one
speaks any more? Isn’t it more and more important to learn modern
languages in the age of globalization? Shouldn’t we be studying natural
sciences and IT?"
The text of this project launched by the former head of the German DAV Dr. Helmut Meissner is currently available in 12 European languages and more will follow...

In Dubrovnik copies of the printed version of the booklet 'Antiquity connects', which contains the manifesto in 16 European languages were distributed (Hitting the title you can download the digital version!). In this context we discussed the next steps to promote the 'Actio ad eruditionem humanisticam in Europa spectans', and we decided to send letters, together with the booklet, to opinion leaders in our countries - in order to get their support. Below you can find the drafts of such a letter and a signature form, which we might send, together with the booklet, to these persons.

Links Bild SCHWEIZ: Arbeitsgruppe "Latein macht Schule" - für ein neues, starkes Latein
Homepage der Schweizer Initiative. Interessanterweise gibt es neuerdings konkrete Studien, die den klar überdurchschnittlichen Studienerfolg von Maturanten in den Klassischen Sprachen schwarz auf weiß dokumentieren. Neben diesen Informationen bietet die Seite gute Argumente, Zitate und Fakten. Unbedingt ansehen!

Zitat aus dem wissenschaftlichen Evaluationsbericht:
"Besonders gut schneiden in allen Fächern die Maturandinnen und Maturanden mit dem Schwerpunktfach (SPF) ‘Alte Sprachen’ ab. Sie belegen in der Erstsprache und in den Naturwissenschaften den ersten Rang, in der Mathematik rangieren sie nur wenig hinter den Spezialisten mit dem SPF Mathematik und sind deutlich vor allen andern Schwerpunktfächern platziert. Der Fähigkeitstest bestätigt das Spitzenresultat. Im Wortlaut: «Die Gruppe des SPF ‘Alte Sprachen’ hat unter dem Aspekt der Ausgeglichenheit bzw. Ausgewogenheit der Kompetenzen (im Sinne einer allgemeinen Studierfähigkeit) am besten abgeschnitten.» (Bericht zu EvaMar II, Seite 220)."
