She is one of the 400 randomly selected Germans who will be discussing deficits and necessary offers in the education system in today’s Friday and tomorrow’s Saturday in the “Education and Learning Citizens’ Council”.

The Citizens’ Council is a project of the independent, non-profit “Montag Foundation” that will run until 2023.

“I’m just a big fan of political participation,” says the psychologist. Carola Engellandt is involved as an election worker and guides through the current exhibition “Fake” in the Hygiene Museum on a voluntary basis. “You can’t refuse to cooperate and then just complain.”

Education politicians in the municipality, state and federal government receive what the citizens’ council discusses as a recommendation. “So I can revolutionize education,” laughs the mother of two.

What she is particularly passionate about, apart from digitization: “School is far removed from the reality of young people’s lives. That has to change.”
