The chances of a good education highly depend on the family background of a child, often related to the lack of funding. For example, children of high earners are much more likely to attend an academic-focused high school than children from families with lower incomes.
However, sound education is particularly important for children coming from disadvantaged families, as a way out of poverty. Every fifth child in Germany has no money for tuition and extracurricular music and sports activities, which are crucial for educational success.
