German Interior Minister Dr. Thomas de Maizière stated on 15.01.2014 that "1,08 million people immigrated to Germany in 2012". For the last decade various leading German politicians have officially stated that Germany is an immigration country. However, these new citizens mostly do not know that they may rather unwillingly break the law of their new home country by simply displaying their educational credentials. The culprit is the educational law of the 16 states of Germany, which is available in German language only! The objective of this book is to shed some light on how old laws developed into contemporary legal principles. By presenting a proper translation and by offering an interpretation it may also help avoiding heavy penalties and embarrassment. As a result this book should be used as guide through the jungle of the various German education laws.
