FAMILY and education

Education with respect to family plays a role in different contexts:
On the one hand, the foundations for education are laid in the family in many ways, for example in the area of political socialization. Here, the ZFG is working on a project that investigates how political attitudes develop in the family.
On the other hand, there are also opportunities through which parents and family can "educate themselves" and be supported in their family life.
