The article gives an overview of the structure, aims, and functioning of German foundations that engage in primary and secondary education. It is discussed how the evolution of the German education regime is accompanied by a development of the characteristics of education foundations. The article argues that the modern foundation—professional, often businesslike large organizations—is best equipped to play a crucial innovating and networking role in partnership with the former exclusively publicly governed German education administration.
